65 Artists selected for Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize 2010

The judges have selected 68 works by 65 artists for the prestigious Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize 2010 Exhibition at Painters’ Hall in November.  This is an exhibition I always enjoy as it focuses on representational drawings and paintings with a bias towards the well drawn.
Created in 2005 with the Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers and the Lynn Foundation. The purpose of the Prize is to encourage creative representational painting and promote the skill of draughtsmanship. This annual exhibition is open to all UK artists with prize money totalling £22,500 and an engraved gold medal for the winner.
The winner of the Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize will be announced at the Private View.  You can see all 68 works in a slideshow on the Painter-Stainers website (scroll down) - although it's unclear which painting belongs to which artist as there are no credits on show.

[Note:  I continue to refine my process for finding artists' website.  I'm now very strongly of the opinion that if an artist wants to be found online they will have made sure their website gets listed on the forst page of Google for a search on "artist (name of artist)". ]


    1. Thank you so much for using my picture in the post, as well as referencing all the possible participating artists sites - invaluable!

    2. My pleasure Olha - you did after all get two images into this year's exhibition! :)
