Unleash the artist in you - Colour with Crawford Art Gallery

Unleash the artist in you - Colour with Crawford Art Gallery

We've teamed up with the Crawford Art Gallery and are asking our readers to try their hand at at colouring in a painting from the Crawford collection. You can print off and colour the painting below.

Instead of painting your own version, you may want to recreate the scene at home - we'd love to see your interpretations.

Share your colouring or recreations of a classic on social using the hashtag #IEColourandCreate with Crawford Art Gallery. We’ll publish some of the best in a future edition of our Weekend supplement.

Send your finished colouring to readers@examiner.ie to be in with a chance of winning a voucher for art supplies. Ts&Cs apply.

About this week's artwork

This painting is more than 300 years old. It was painted in the 17th century, photography had not been invented and only the richest people could afford to have a portrait painted.

We do not know the name of the gentleman in this portrait, it is a mystery. Feeling playful? Give this gentleman a cunning disguise to add to the mystery.

Crawford Art Gallery’s national collection comprises 4,000 works, ranging from eighteenth-century Irish and European painting and sculpture, through to contemporary video installations. ‘Colour our Collection’ is part of its Learn and Explore programme
