Commission/Collaboration for Maverick TV’s ‘Random Acts’

I was commissioned by an MA student whilst in my final year of my degree to produce a painting from a recording I had listened to. The recording was from an anonymous source who told an emotional story, my task was to produce a portrait of the image I had in my head of this person, from the recording alone. I painted this at the top of Steep Hill in Lincoln whilst people walked by and wrote names around the painting, whilst I painted it. This task really tested my abilities to not only paint in a public space, but also improved my ability to paint under pressure and to work with sensitive material.
