The Quick Draw Competition is a plein air painting competition, exhibit and sale that is open to anyone who wishes to participate. If you would like to paint in the Quick Draw follow the registration process below. Nearly 200 people; competition painters, professionals, amateurs and the simply adventurous compete and have fun. These artists have only six blocks and two hours to complete their works. During this short time, all registered Quick Draw participants will set up their supplies and paint or draw en plein air in downtown Easton.
This is one of the most compelling experiences of the week. Together, artists and spectators are immersed in the creative process. See the scenes and how the artists interpret them. Smell the wet paint and get caught up in the excitement of watching 100's of painting come to life before your eyes!
After the paint out, an exhibit is held on Harrison Street and paintings are exhibited on the easels on which they were created. The paintings will be judged by Plein Air Easton Competition Judge, Kip Forbes and awards will be presented at 1:30pm. Then any unsold paintings will be removed at 2pm. Winning Quick Draw paintings will be on display at the Waterfowl Festival Building until 4pm on Sunday. Everything about the Quick Draw is quick...so do not miss out!
