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

James Barry Portraits of Barry and Burke in the Characters of Ulysses and his Companion Fleeing from the Cave of Polyphemus c.1776

Cork-born artist James Barry gave this work a snappy title! James Barry was born in Water Lane, Cork City in 1741. In this picture, he imagines that his friend and teacher, the philosopher Edmund Burke, is a legendary Greek hero called Ulysses. They are trying to escape from a monster called Polyphemus who is a cyclops, shown hunched in the background. A cyclops is a giant monster from legend with just one eye!

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
