Big Painting Challenge

Standard

The BBC have a new series called the ‘Big Painting Challenge‘. Like the ‘Great British Sewing Bee‘, they invite 10 amateur artists to compete in a 6 week challenge with one person leaving each week. They also have a ‘little painting challenge‘ with the prize of Ā£250 worth of art supplies! These are theĀ pictures I have done so far:

The categories are:

  • Children Age 7 to 15
