The annual open air contest saw more than 30 painters dotted around the city, all working their magic with their paintbrushes and easels to turn city scenes into works of art in just three hours.

Norwich Cathedral, Norwich Market and the River Wensum were among the artists’ inspirations as well as Pottergate, Elm Hill and other spots that caught their eyes.

Collectively the artists created more than 200 works over three days, with Eloise O’Hare winning first prize with her unique watercolour and ink painting of the back of Norwich Railway Station called Keeping Track of Time.

Paint Out Norwich, which was founded by James Colman, is part of the annual Hostry Festival at Norwich Cathedral.
