Dimbola Museum and Galleries and Isle of Wight Hidden Hero, Julia Margaret Cameron, are back on the BBC.
Both feature in the BBC1 programme, Civilisations Stories - Art, Us and the Truth (7.30pm).
Presented by the well-known meteorologist Tomasz Schafernaker, who happens to be an superb portrait artist (see some of his work below), the programme tours of some of the south of England's art treasures.
During the snow period, Tomasz makes a visit to Dimbola to meet Gail Middleton and discovers more about the captivating portraits by the pioneering Victorian photographer, Julia Margaret Cameron, inspiring him to take more risks with his own art.

Watch this short video to see just how great an artist, Tomasz is.
So here’s my most intricate portrait to date, Sir #DavidAttenborough. He took around 100hrs to complete. I could never say that any of these latest drawings are finished...I could continue with even more detail! There comes a point when you just have to stop! Working on exciting art projects this Spring! #Attenborough #Art #InstaArt #Portrait #RealistArt #Realism #pencildrawing #colourpencilart #colourpencildrawing #RetinaArt #schafgallery
