Many hands made stylish artwork in an event held at the White Rose Shopping Centre in Leeds.
The BBC Big Art initiative saw 60 pieces of canvas being used to create a new interpretation of A Love Lyric, a painting by Yorkshire’s William Shackleton.
Shoppers taking part were invited to copy the relevant section of the original onto their piece of canvas before all 60 were placed on display together.
Centre director Richard Bowler said: “We are so excited that White Rose was selected to represent West Yorkshire in the Big Art event.
“This was a fantastic opportunity for any local artists to showcase their talent and work together with the local community to raise awareness of art from the region.
”There’s no doubt the event was a huge hit and I hope our shoppers enjoyed the display as much as we did.”
Yesterday’s (Feb 21) Big Art date was held to help celebrate the launch of the BBC’s Your Paintings website.
It showcases the UK’s entire collection of more than 210,000 oil paintings in a single place online for the first time.
The website has been developed in partnership with the Public Catalogue Foundation (PCF) charity.
Talking about the site, BBC Learning controller Saul Nasse said: “The idea that we could put on virtual display all the UK’s paintings was madly ambitious, but thanks to a brilliant partnership with the PCF, we’ve realised that ambition.
“Your Paintings is a thing of beauty and I’m hoping the events that we’re rolling out right across the country are going to inspire thousands more people to learn about these wonderful paintings.”
The UK’s national collection of oil paintings includes work by some of the greatest artists of the last 700 years.
At any one time, however, around 80 per cent of the paintings in the collection are not on public display.
