Catherine Davidson, The Craggs at Dawn (from Carlton Hill).
LONDON.- The Worshipful Company of Painter Stainers and the Lynn Foundation announced, Catherine Davidson, as winner of the 2014 Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize, for her mesmerising work created en plein air, The Craggs at Dawn (from Carlton Hill) – pictured above. During a private award ceremony, 17 March 2014, Davidson was presented with the £15,000 prize in addition to an engraved gold medal.

The Young Artist Award of £2,500 was awarded to University of Brighton student, Charlie Schaffer, for his work, Antonio. Five Runner-up prizes of £1,500 each were awarded to; Peter Archer for Causeway; Wylie Craig for MD (Pierced); Anabel Cullen for Untitled (Adrian Gillian); Benjamin Hope for Self portrait in leftover paint; and David Tebbs for Catwalk No.1.

Now in its ninth year, the Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize is a competition, which encourages creative representational painting and promotes the skill of draftsmanship. The 2014 exhibition comprises of 85 works by 78 artists selected by a prestigious panel of judges; Peter Clossick, Artist; Ken Howard OBE RA NEAC, Artist; Paul Newland, Artist; Steve Pill, Editor Artists and Illustrators magazine; and Andrew Wilton, Visiting Research Fellow at Tate Britain.

2014 selector, Steve Pill shares his thoughts on the selection of the exhibition:

I was keen to try and view each work from the perspective of a wider audience. The two stated aims of the Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize are to encourage creative representational painting and promote the skill of draughtsmanship, so I often asked myself: would we be fulfilling that promise by including this work? Would a visitor expecting these qualities be truly satisfied by every painting we chose? I hope you’ll agree that we have stayed true to those principles and selected a collection of work that really celebrates the vitality, diversity and skill of contemporary representational painting in the UK today.

The 2014 Lynn Painter-Stainers exhibition is open at the Mall Galleries, London SW1, from 17 to 22 March 2014. All works featured in the exhibition are for sale.
