Artists ‘Plein Air Day’ 2023

Win a Joseph Zbukvic Watercolour Painting

Celebrate the 2023 Camberwell Art Show opening by painting outdoors at the ‘Plein Air’ day in the City of Boroondara.

  • Artists who wish to participate must register for the event before 4th June and pay a $20 entry fee.
  • On Sunday 4th June 2023, registered artists for the event will meet at 11am outside the main entrance to the Hawthorn Town Hall in Burwood Rd, Hawthorn.
  • At the Town Hall, the registered artists would be given stamped paper/canvas (generously supplied by Senior Art Supplies) for their painting and have an allocated amount of time, a maximum of 3 hours to paint within Boroondara.
  • On completion of their painting, each artist will return to the registration desk at the Town Hall entrance at 2pm and give their painting to the Camberwell Rotary Club Representative.
  • Once all the paintings have been collected, renowned watercolourist Joseph Zbukvic will judge the entries.
  • The announcement of the winner will be at 1pm on Saturday 24th June at the Camberwell Art Show with the winning artist being presented with an original Joseph Zbukvic watercolour.

NB. If there is rain on this day there are many indoor options available for artists to paint under cover …’plein air’ artists are a very hardy lot!

“……Why is plein air the best teacher?
1: It makes you look
2: You see shapes not a flat pattern as in photos.
3: You simply must simplify, no way you can get it all in.
4: You must paint quickly……” Joseph Zbukvic
