The Walker on the Telly

A truly awful idea, I hate it, its not even a nice or interesting picture. Still, good to see a local gallery on national TV. Why wasn’t I invited??

Rolf on Art – The Big Event BBC1
Sun 25 Sep, 5:45 pm – 6:45 pm 60mins

Thousands of amateur artists responded to Rolf’s recent appeal for volunteers to paint the next People’s masterpiece – a portrait of Henry VIII by Hans Holbein the Younger. More than 100 of the lucky ones will be meeting the challenge in Trafalgar Square and at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool. Rolf will have his own challenge leading a team of absolute beginners whose only experience with a paintbrush has been decorating the bathroom ceiling. Will the task be completed and will Henry once again gaze down upon his subjects?
