I have recently been enjoying the BBC's artists series titled What Do Artists Do All Day? On the BBC Four program homepage is a description of the 30-minute profiles: Intimate, observational portraits of leading artists, revealing unique insights into their working lives and creative process. I have watched several of them and they have been consistently good. At the bottom of this post is a playlist of 23 artists, and I have noticed additional artists on the show's clips site. For me, this is the next best thing to a studio visit, and in some ways even more satisfying because of the choice edits. Here are screen grabs from some of the artist profiles.
