An oil painting of one of Norwich’s most historic streets has scooped first prize in the inaugural Paint Out Norwich competition.

The open air art event saw 28 artists take to the city’s streets on Wednesday and Thursday to create work inspired by seven Norwich landmarks.

Haidee-Jo Summers was awarded first prize for her painting of Elm Hill - called Work to be Done - at the Paint Out Norwich gala night and auction at Norwich Cathedral’s Hostry on Thursday.

Second prize was presented to Chris Daynes for an oil painting of Pull’s Ferry called The Watergate, and third prize was given to Roy Connelly for an oil painting of part of Norwich Cathedral entitled The Dark Entry.

The event was sponsored by Broadland Wineries, with Savills providing the first prize of £1,000 and Eastern Daily Press publisher Archant providing the second and third prizes of £500 and £250. TW Gaze of Diss ran Thursday’s auction.

The seven city landmarks that were the subjects for the competition were Norwich Castle, Norwich Cathedral, St John’s Roman Catholic Cathedral, Pull’s Ferry, Elm Hill, Norwich Market, and The Forum.

A Paint Out Norwich exhibition of all the artwork created over the two days is being held at the Hostry until November 2, and people will be able to vote for their favourite artist. Visit www.paintoutnorwich.org.

Paint Out Norwich is part of the Hostry Festival which runs until November 2. Visit www.hostryfestival.org
