  • Description

    Market Drayton, Shropshire.

    Sir George Wade creates works of art using all kinds of household items.

    M/S of George choosing things from the house - a toothbrush, a spoon, and a screwdriver, which he will use to work on his painting. There are various shots of George at work using a shaving brush and other items to get paint off the palette and spread it onto the canvas. The item closes with George showing a painting of a tree at the front of a stack of his paintings, and he shifts it to show a selection of his work.

    Note: see CP 543 Cuts on *PM0323* for out takes.
