Channel 4 have axed daytime series Drawers' Off, which sees amateur artists pit their life drawing skills against each other in a bid to win the weekly cash prize, after two series.
The show sees artists drawing professional life models, enabling them to fully concentrate on producing portraits cantered on the challenging, provocative, visually impactful and, of course, nude poses the models will create.
At the end of each episode, each artist’s portrait are displayed in the gallery and judged by their fellow competitors who will score their rivals’ work out of 10, with the highest-scoring piece going into the winner’s gallery.
At the end of the week, the artists will vote for their favourite of the five artworks in the gallery, with the winning artist taking home the prize.
Jenny Eclair said (via The Sun): "Channel 4 have decided there will be no more. I am devastated, absolutely gutted. You can only do so much. It is really hard to get a foothold in that time slot. If you don’t tick the number of viewers, you don’t get another series, simple as that."
Previous episodes of Drawers' Off are available on All4.
