Jenni Murray watercolour

Jenni Murray, who has presented BBC Radio 4’s long running Woman’s Hour for the last Thirty three years, retired from the show yesterday.

This painting is based on a photo by Tricia Yourkevich in the Guardian newspaper today. The painting is approximately the same size as the photo.

I hope Jenni Murray doesn’t mind me painting her. I have followed Woman’s Hour for years and have always found her to be an intelligent, warm and humourous host.

I also hope Tricia Youkevich doesn’t mind me using her photo, If she wants me to take this post down I will as I would if Jenni Murray objects.

I don’t do many watercolours and this is a quick sketch on on white cartridge paper in a small A4 sketchbook.
