NEW for 2014 - En Plein Air Award
We are proud to announce a new award for Artist of the Year 2014, in memory of Mitch Waite who was passionate about encouraging artists to take painting outside the studio.
The final judging of this award will be by Mitch's wife Hannah. To be eligible entries must have been painted in, or finished from preliminary sketches and paintings done en plein air. Entrants must provide details of how and where they painted their picture.
