Day 3: Stewart Lees painting live from Chelsea!

We spoke to North Norfolk artist, Stewart Lees, as he worked on a beautiful still life piece today at Chelsea. The detail found in his paintings is striking and has a tendency to whet the appetite.

Stewart spoke to us about his career as B&B owner, and how he went between painting and cooking breakfast for the guests! As he painted the fresh ingredients for a salad dressing live this morning, it was clear his passion for food was still alive.

Stewart explained that since he was a small boy he loved drawing and always had a pencil in his hand. He moved on to watercolour later in life but his main focus is still the detail. Take a look at our exclusive interview to hear his tips on how to get the perfect technique.
