I am so excited to announce that I was chosen to take part in this year's series of the BBC Big Painting Challenge. I have been painting for just over eight years and this was the first experience of creating work with other artists! I cannot wait to see the first episode on Easter Sunday on BBC 1 at 6pm!
About the BBC Big Painting Challenge:
"Ten amateur artists, with a passion for painting, are given intensive tuition by our returning mentors, visual artist and curator Diana Ali and artist and designer Pascal Anson. From the Cotswolds to Glasgow, each of the six episodes comes from a new location and follows a different genre to teach and test our budding Picassos in equal measure.
Once the instruction is complete the artists are tasked to create a painting that is shown to members of the public who are able to give their favourite the all-important pass through to the next episode. The rest have to face our formidable judges, portrait artist Daphne Todd OBE and Lachlan Goudie, a member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, who make the ultimate pronouncement on which of them is sent home.
At the end of this six-week artistic boot camp the judges choose the artist to crown winner of The Big Painting Challenge." *
Presenters: Mariella Frostrup and Rev Richard Coles
Judges: Daphne Todd OBE and Lachlan Goudie
Mentors: Visual artist and curator Diana Ali and artist and designer Pascal Anson
