Paint Out Wells Sunrise Artists Prize
As part of Paint Out Wells 2015 artists were encouraged to rise early and paint the sunrise at Wells-next-the-Sea beach. This was not part of the main competition and so was optional. We are grateful to Rosemary & Co for their sponsorship of a brushes set prize for the best Paint Out artist painting Ebb Tide, Wells which was won by Roy Connelly, a veteran prize winner at Paint Out Norwich 2014. For other prize awards at Wells see here.
Artist Roy Connelly
Roy Connelly competed in both Paint Out Wells 2015 and Paint Out Norwich 2014 at which he won the third prize. Roy is a founder member of the Plein Air Brotherhood, and says he is just as happy with his easel and box of oil paints on a deserted beach as he is at noisy and busy Trafalgar Square in London. His home turf is the area in Suffolk, close to where Gainsborough and Constable lived and worked.
Rosemary & Co Artists’ Brushes
Rosemary & Co artists’ brushes are all hand made to the finest quality and come ready for acrylic, oil, pastels or watercolour. There are easily portable plein air pochade sets, specialist sets for botanical, garden, or studio painting, and many more besides.
