Big Boughs At Bodnant

21 Apr

Husb and I just had a few days in North Wales, the first time we’ve been away from home since lockdown started over a year ago. It was lovely. Lots of places are still closed because of Covid19, so we packed picnics and took off into the countryside. Our first stop was the beautiful gardens of Bodnant where I saw this incredible tree that had fallen at some point and thrown up new, contorted boughs from where it lay. I chose my homemade walnut ink and vintage squirrel brushes onto some vintage Ingres paper I was given a few years back.

This amazing opportunity is open to all artists over 16, resident in the UK. To enter send in a landscape artwork that you have created within the last five years, via their website.

If selected to take part in the competition you will then be given the opportunity to paint a specially chosen, stunning landscape within the UK. The prize on offer is a £10,000 commission for a major British institution plus £500 worth of art materials from Cass Art. The deadline for applying to the competition is 30th April 2021.
