A RENOWNED watercolour artist is set to feature on BBC’s Countryfile, showing his acclaimed works of the region.

Artist Paul Stangroom's paintings of Teesdale, which includes ‘High Force’ will be shown in an episode of the programme.

The Countryfile segment follows Mr Stangroom as he paints, with footage partly shot at the crumbling Wall Fell Farm, near Stagshaw, Corbridge.

The Countryfile team then filmed the artist at nearby Great Whittington Fell, as he focussed on a subject for one of his renowned windows series in an abandoned dwelling there.

Filming concluded on Wednesday, November 6, in his Prudhoe gallery.

Mr Stangroom said: "I really enjoyed the process of the Countryfile filming. I have been tying my shoelaces all of my life, yet it is amazing how difficult a simple task becomes when you’re being filmed by a BBC crew.

"I have explored the landscape around Teesdale, Weardale, Northumberland and the North Pennines extensively, seeking abandoned dwellings and landscapes to paint.

"I was very pleased to be approached by BBC Countryfile to be featured exploring and painting the wild terrains of the North-East.

"They were interested to see how I find my source material and to film the process of turning that into a painting."

The Countryfile episode will air on Sunday, December 1, on BBC One.
