The Big Painting Challenge - the artists' blog posts

One of the things about blogs is you get to say what your experience was like as well as showing people what your painting looks like.

That's all the more important when you're painting on BBC1 and your paintings are being criticised in full view of the nation - and your comments get edited down (as do the Judges!)

So here for posterity are all the blog posts I could find  by the artists participating in The Final of The Big Painting Challenge - plus a couple of the other artists who blogged about their experiences.

Paul Bell - The Winner

You can read Paul Bell's posts about how he became the winner on his website's blog http://paulbellart.co.uk/#blog.

He was also the only artist who managed a blog post about each episode - so well done Paul on that count too!

Claire Parker - Finalist


You can read Claire's post about The Final - Worse things happen at sea - on her website Home is where the blog is.

She writes well and has some interesting blog posts written as a spinoff to her experience - do have a read.

Richard Salter - Finalist


Richard has been painting studio responses to his episodes


Amy Goldring - Finalist


Amy doesn't have a blog but you can read The Big Painting Challenge: An Exclusive Interview with Amy Goldring

  1. Another great post, you are amazing, thank you Katherine. With holidays coming up, I will catch up on your coverage and links. Unfortunately I have not seen the shows, BBC does not broadcast abroad.. but your posts have made this very interesting. Hope you have a great Easter holiday.
