A Preston artist has drawn her way into the finals of a national arts competition.

Sally Dyer featured in the Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year and won her heat.

Her portrait of Outnumbered actor Daniel Roche caught the eye of the judges and she sketched her way through.

She told Cassart: “Yes, I was very pleased with my finished painting. Every time I paint there is a point of complete excitement where I sense the end is near and and I can not wait to get there and see the finished article. We had such a short amount of time to paint I was worried I wouldn’t naturally get to that point, but from the offset it flowed well and I felt really comfortable.”

Sally now goes through to the final with the chance of being crowned Sky Portrait Artist of the Year.
