A South Yorkshire artist had some good clean fun doing an art project...in the bath.

Andrew Farmer was recruited to create a seaside harbour masterpiece using colourful children’s bath crayons with a tub as his canvas.

The challenge was set by Ed Frost of In the Tub - a website dedicated to all things bath-related - and was completed in a room at Kenwood Hall in Sheffield.

Andrew, aged 29, of Sprotbrough in Doncaster, said: “It sounded like a fun project. As I was drawing I was backwards and forwards looking all the time at how I was doing because the picture can deform, especially going around the corners of the bath tub as it’s not a flat surface. My back is still not right!”

Andrew’s efforts were filmed and a video of his creation coming to life is online at www.inthetub.co.uk/bath-crayons.
