Paint the Town

The Kingston School of Art participated in the International Plein Air Painters Worldwide Paintout on September 12, 13 and 14th. The weather was a bit iffy but Barriefield was inspirational.

The Paint the Town Exhibition is at the Window Art Gallery. Here is a short video from Station 14 that will give you a taste. Many thanks to Marsha Gormley and David Carr for making this happen at the Window Art Gallery

Apparently I had a good day as one of my works won an award. There is no down side to painting outside with friends surrounded by inspiration.

PHIL CHADWICK: “B And B Flip Side” - oil
A compositionally engaging work, with its dramatic perspective creating a convincing sense of depth. Your confident, decisive brushwork produces a pleasing visual organization that is intuitive, when it could easily have become mechanical or predictable. The rich, cool colour range and deep darks add an interesting atmosphere of mystery.
