The adorable Brian Belo (Winner of Big Brother 8, television personality and magazine columnist) posed for a painting in 2011.

I wanted to capture a side of Brian which wasn't the one everybody knew from television. He is such a funny, smiley character, and had me in
stitches while he posed for me. However, it was also clear he had a very thoughtful, quieter side which I was keen to get across to people who
only imagined him one way.

I love the way he looks in this painting. He didn't have his trade mark blue contact lenses in, so his face is completely natural, and his expression is
reflective rather than posed.
