Paint your perfect festival celebratory scene to win Inktense products worth over £450(rrp) from Derwent

A festival is described in the dictionary as a day, or days, of special celebration and, as part of our PaintersOnline Virtual Patchings Festival we invite you to paint your perfect festival scene.

Consider what you would most like to celebrate; would it be flowers, wildlife, art, family, friends, the end of lockdown? What would make up your perfect day or days of celebration? Or maybe you have visited a special festival in the past, or have an annual event you would love to attend? Incorporate these ideas and dreams into a joyful art work for your chance to win a set of Inktense products from Derwent worth over £450 (rrp).

The live events at our Virtual Festival end on July 10, however you can still enjoy the rest of the virtual show by clicking here.

To celebrate our Virtual Patchings Festival, Derwent are giving you the chance to try out their Inktense pencils, paints and blocks which can be used in a variety of techniques wet or dry.

Derwent’s Inktense formulation creates vibrant, permanent colour when combined with water. Inktense doesn’t washout like watercolour so it can be worked over without affecting previous layers – even light over dark. It is ideal for a wide range of fine art or craft projects and can be used on fabric and many other surfaces. The Inktense paper is robust and porous and it can withstand multiple layers of wet application for incredibly vibrant results.

This fabulous prize features:

  • 72 Inktense Pencils worth £150
  • 36 Inktense Blocks worth £79
  • 24 Inktense Pan Palette worth £50
  • 3 x Inktense Pads worth £70 + £45 + £35, respectively
  • 4 Waterbrush Set worth £25

Enter your festival painting for the chance to win a set of Derwent Inktense products worth over £450 (rrp).
