Ben Fogle - New lives in the Wild - Plein air Painting - Fair Isle & Tommy Episode.

Where the Wild Men Are. Fair Isle

Ben Fogle came back for a Fair Isle revisit episode in mid-October 2020
The Fair Isle - New Lives in the Wild is now being aired for the first time in the UK .
March 9th at 9pm on Channel 5 

The 2015 Channel 5  TV Promo Video

Seen on TV all over the world.
Dubbed and Subtitled in many languges.
It was funny to see myself talk in French and Hindi.

Sort of awkward... we had to be six feet apart at all times.

Ben looking at my Paintings before his art lesson.
Insparation for a bit of Plein Air Paiting of his own. 

Ben Fogle the Art Student

Artist: Ben Fogle - Auld Haa, Fair Isle - Oil Painting on Canvas - October 2020

Out-standing in his field, but not this one!

Ben didn't want to put the Paint Brushes down.
I could tell this was a challenge he wanted to spend more time with.
We had only 30 minutes of painting time, while also being on camera.
This was great fun though, I remember saying...
"The most important part of this painting is going to be the signature."
