A stunning watercolour of a Norwich memorial built to remember those who lost their lives in the Boer War scooped top prize in an open air art competition celebrating our fine city in paint.

Richard Bond’s Winged Victory - depicting the monument by Castle Meadow - won first place in the Paint Out Norwich event which is now in its second year.

Paint Out Norwich saw more than 40 artists paint some of the city’s greatest sights over three days last week, and on the final day members of the public joined them for a mass paint out on Mousehold Heath.

The city was full of easels and paint pots between Tuesday and Thursday, with the professional competitors having just three hours to complete each canvas they entered into the competition.

The fruits of their efforts are now on display at Norwich Cathedral’s Hostry, and the winners were announced at a gala event at the venue on Friday night.

Richard Bond was awarded £1,500 for coming first with Winged Victory. Mo Teeuw won the second prize of £1,000 for the painting View from Mousehold Heath, while Eloise O’Hare was awarded the third prize of £500 for her painting Chocolate Arcade which featured the chocolate shop in the Royal Arcade.

This year also saw the addition of a Nocturne competition as part of Paint Out Norwich, and the £1,000 prize for this was given to Michael Richardson for his painting of Dove Street at night.

Another first for this year was a bursary award for an artist under 30, and this prize of a year’s worth of art supplies from Cass Art was given to Alfie Carpenter for all of the work he created during the competition.

The Paint Out Norwich judges also each gave an individual commendation award of £100.

David Curtis chose St Giles on the Hill by Liam Wales, Amanda Geitner chose Sovereign House by Brian Korteling and Marcus Dickey Horley chose Autumn at Wensum River by Gennadiy Ivanov.

• All of these paintings, along with many more created by Paint Out Norwich artists are on display at Norwich Cathedral’s Hostry until Friday. Some of the paintings will also be exhibited at the Maddermarket Theatre’s gallery from November 2 to 28.

• Paintings from the Mousehold Heath mass paint out event involving members of the public will be on show at OPEN, in Norwich, from tomorrow until Saturday.

• Paint Out Norwich is part of the Hansells Hostry Festival. The autumn arts festival runs until Saturday. For more details about events visit www.hostryfestival.org
