The Big Painting Challenge is back on the BBC! Presented by Mariella Frostrup and Rev. Richard Coles, along with artistic mentors Pascal Anson and Diana Ali, the programme search nationwide for the best up-and-coming amateur artists.
Mariella Frostrup previously appeared on BBC Two series World’s Most Dangerous Roads, and both her and he co-presenter Have I Got News for You. Rev. Richard Coles have been guests on Have I Got News for You.
For the finale the production chose The Historic Dockyard, Chatham, where the first challenge was to paint a self-portrait followed by the masterclasses, all in the Tarred Yarn Store. The Final challenge meant the contestants were able to choose any motif and, unsurprisingly, there were a few paintings of ships that made it to the final exhibition in Slip 3.
The series kicks off on Easter Sunday 1st April 2018 at 6pm on BBC One, and continues weekly on Sundays with the finale airing on Sunday 6th May 2018.
