|Yewbarrow and Wastwater – being transformed into a Painting by Numbers.|
BBC Radio Cumbria & Up for Arts are setting out to kindle a passion for painting by creating a huge Paint by Numbers scene at an outside broadcast at Ulverston’s Coronation Hall, Cumbria.
Listeners can pick-up a brush and be a No.1 (Sky Blue) to a No22 (Burnt Sienna) and together create A Picture of Cumbria.
Artist Geoff Tristram has created the outline – the man behind all the Painting by Numbers for Reeves who once tried (and failed) to sneak Bakewell tarts into a copy of The Last Supper.
He’s traced a photograph kindly donated by Terry Abraham inspired by his mesmerising film ‘Life of a Mountain: Scafell Pike’, for a classic slice of Lakeland beauty.
From 9am til 12pm on February 19th, Kevin Fernihough’s Mid-Morning Show will be inviting all-comers to reconnect with this battery-free pastime, meet local art groups and ask what art can do to revive communities.
