Learn about me painting live on BBC Radio London and The Barking Hour. During their show I created a dog portrait of the presenter’s pet.
Painting Live on BBC Radio London 'The Barking Hour'
I often attend events dedicated to dogs and their owners and set-up for painting live. This has included Crufts among other wonderful happenings.
Recently I was invited to appear on BBC Radio London and The Barking Hour. This broadcast is packed full of all things canine and a lot of fun.
The presenter of the show is Jo Good and I was there to paint her British Bulldog, Matilda. I was painting live on the Piazza in front of Broadcasting House in London.
It was a fun experience painting outdoors in the sunshine and meeting the fellow guests. They included a canine expert, Victoria Stilwell, alongside the fabulous Kai Hoffman Jazz ensemble.
The radio show's co-presenter, and expert on 'all things doggy', also Anna Webb helped me to take some snaps of Matilda. I could see that I was going to enjoy bringing out her quirky little character.
The below images show how the hour long show panned out and how far I got with painting Matilda. You can also see when I returned for the big reveal.
Matilda looked very happy upon seeing her likeness. I also returned with an extra portrait of the sound engineer's gorgeous Yorkie, George.
