SILVER AWARD, Art in the Open 2013

I am delighted to announce that the above painting of Slade in County Wexford has won the T. Morris silver award at the Art in the Open international Plein Air Painting Festival 2013. This is the 6th year of the festival which has grown year-on-year and now attracts painters from all over the world. It has become the largest event of its type in Europe with painters producing works of art at various locations throughout south east Ireland over a two week period and culminating in an exhibition of selected works in Wexford.
The rules of the festival dictate that all works of art must be produced on location directly from the subject, not in the studio or from photographs. The festival is a great opportunity to meet other artists, both local and international, professional and amateur and share techniques or the problems of painting on location or just enjoy a cup of coffee and a chat.
Featured here are two other paintings I produced during the festival: 'Holiday Weekend, Enniscorthy', watercolour and 'John Cullinan painting at Carne Beach', watercolour.
