Watercoulour Challege is a daytime classic produced in the United
Kingdom which ran from 1998 to 2001. Each show included three amateur
artists. Each were given four hours to paint the same landscape in
watercolour. The artistry came through during this time, since each
artist would create a different interpretation of the assigned piece.
Each week, these artists were judged by a guest professional artist.
This guest artist would select a winner who would then appear in a
regional final, with the main goal being to reach the series final.
Guest judges included Mike Chaplin, Timmy Mallet, and Hazel Sloane, to
name a few. The programme received a Royal Television Society (RTS)
award for Best Feature in Daytime Television in 2001.
