Egg Tempera Wins

Congratulations to Ruth Stage of the New English Art Club who won this year's Lynn Painter-Stainers first prize worth £15,000. Here is her winning painting The Isabella Plantation, which she painted using the ancient method of egg tempera. I must admit there's too much yoke in this graphic for my taste, but the original could be stunning. Runners-up prizes of £1,500 went to Robert Dukes, Jennifer McRae, Danny Markey, Cherry Pickles and George Rowlett. The young artist prize of £2,500 went to John Hainsworth. Over 1,000 paintings were submitted for these awards (CLICK). The exhibition of selected works opened yesterday at the Mall Galleries in London and runs until 2 March, admission free (CLICK).
