Inside portrait artist Alexander Talbot Rice's studio


Ten schoolchildren from Carmarthenshire have been chosen to fly to Florence to study fine art as part of an art scholarship set up by celebrated portrait artist Alexander Talbot Rice.

Rice, whose family used to live in Dinefwr castle, has painted portraits of Queen Elizabeth II, Margaret Thatcher and is currently working on a canvas of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI.

He showed BBC Wales around his studio.
