Online Painting: Kildare Portrait Artist of the Year 2020


The portrait competition will take on a whole new flavour this year by going online. It will be quite different this year but equally as interesting! Will Nathans, winner of the Kildare Portrait Artist of the Year 2019, will paint a portrait over a three hour period from his own studio where  the public can watch live.  The public will be encouraged to paint along with Will. Artists are invited to send in an image of their painting/drawing and a winner will be chosen by Will Nathans, the following week. There will be a €500 prize for the winner. This prize is for all artists over 16 years.  The Kildare Gallery, again this year, will be offering prizes for under 16 of €100 for 1st place, €75 for 2nd place and €50 for 3rd place.

Everyone can join in, either to just watch Will Nathans create a masterpiece or by taking part to paint or draw the sitter along with Will.
