As part of Visit London's 'One Amazing Week' promotion, four giant re-worked 'paint by number' canvasses from the Tate collection sprung up across the capital, allowing up to 4,000 people the chance to participate on an innovative art experiment.

The initiative was launched by Claudia Schiffer and Alan Yentob at Covent Garden Piazza with Modigliani's Portrait of a Girl. C├ęzanne's Still Life with Waterjug was at Waterloo International. Other painting and locations were The Chomondley Ladies at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich and JMW Turner's Norham Castle, Sunrise at Heathrow Airport.
