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 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

The Goose Girl by Edith Somerville 1888. (Illustration by Annie Forrester)

This young girl has made friends with the farmyard goose and does not want to see him being served for dinner! The artist Edith Somerville was born in Corfu in 1858, but she spent much of her life living in Castletownsend, West Cork.

Throughout her life, she painted and sketched daily, while successfully publishing short stories and novels with her cousin Violet Martin.

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.
