Maidenhead artist takes top prize in En Plein Air  competition

Runner-up Sarah Luton works on her masterpiece.

An artist from Maidenhead scooped the top prize at the En Plein Air competition in Windsor and Eton for the second year in a row.

Amanda McAllen, who lives in Summerleaze Road, wowed the judges of the open air art competition with her painting of Windsor Castle which she created from her location near Goswell Meadow.  

Artists from across the borough picked up their paint brushes to take part in the event on Saturday, which was organised by the Windsor and Eton Town Partnership and Windsor Events.

Entrants were given four hours to create their masterpieces from locations across Windsor town centre including Windsor Bridge, Alexandra Gardens and Peascod Street.

Cllr George Bathurst, chair of the Windsor and Eton Town Partnership, helped judge the entries, with the public also voting in record numbers for the People’s Choice Award.

Sarah Luton, from Furze Platt, finished runner-up and former Maidenhead resident Gail Dorrington won the public vote.
