2016 Winners

 

Best Oil/Acrylic

No370 Title Upon a Blue Base Artist Greg Smith

A really skillfully crafted painting showing the artist’s ability to create the beauty in the subjects he shows. His confidant disappearing edges as the objects come from the shadows allows us to see the light shaping the objects – not lines. The intense exploration of blues is balanced with the subtle introduction of some red/browns to give relief. A powerful work from a serious artist.

Highly Commended no 83 Little Pot by Joan Denner

Joan has emphasised what she wants us to see by enhancing colour, contrast and line but mostly light. By diminishing sections of the painting her subject simply shines.

Best Watercolour ..

No259 Title Swan and Cygnets Artist Jan Long

Jan’s drawing skill comes through this watercolour as she decides to draw with her brush and colour. A lovely subject treated to a novel, negative space frame that doesn’t detract from the focus of swan and cygnets.

Highly Commended Lunch Hour at Scott Alley - by Jayaram Parappil

The city laneway is captured with the linear perspective drawing us in to join the diners along this alley. The harmony of colour doesn’t shout noise that a multi coloured painting would do so we feel happy entering the space.

Best Pastel

No 407 Title Unadorned Beauty Artist Rosemary Todman Parrant

Rosemary’s pastels set a very high benchmark for this medium. Her close attention to building her colours slowly showing tonal change and subtlety until the final strokes of light flit across her subject make her work instantly recognisable.

Highly Commended Ottway Magic by Joy Timms

BestDrawing

a difficult but very full section

No 160 Title Angel Artist Karina Griffiths

Superb execution and high drawing skill. I would love to see her focus on a subject and explore it with differing focus.

Highly Commended no 369 Misty Morning by Diane Simpson

A study of variation within repetition in this line of fishermen on the wharf.

This section attracted a variety of artworks based on line including a pastel of Santorini of prizewinning standard by Brian Pleasants

And a limited reproduction called Hakaido Branches by Sharon Patience

Best Junior Art

4-6 No 476 Title Pet Portrait 3 Artist Yarrabah School

Personality abounds in this Pink, Red and Blue spotted dog on a green backdrop.

• It makes me smile inside.

7-9 No 396 Title Raev Skraev Artist Hayley Thompson

One of two colourful design paintings that are a joy to view. I love both works.

10 - 12 No248 Title Quinces Artist Emma Kozac

Emma is showing a mature handling of shape and light. Well done.

 

 

2015 Winners

Oils / Acrylics

 This is a marvellous example of the fluid and vigorous use of oil to convey movement and energy.   The beauty of the mediums and three primary colours is its inherent ability to create appropriate textural marks,  almost at its own will.

340 SMITH Gregory R. Dragon, Birds and Serenity

Watercolours

 This work was chosen for its overall balance and composition.   It has a good sense of light and movement, showing a looseness and freedom with a flowing design held together by related colours and brushstrokes.   Overall a very pleasant wor
329 SIMMONS Julie High and Dry

Commended

105 FENTON Priscilla Peace

Pastels

 The work was chosen for its "grey tone" of colour and overall balance.   The artist has conveyed mood and feeling to this painting.   Structure and skin tone of the figure was very nice and shows a sound knowledge of tonal range in painting, warm and cool colour contrast with soft depict of the background has been used to give a feeling of depth.   Overall a very pleasant work.

Drawing

   This "portrait" drawing is a fine work and shows a good knowledge of the many elements necessary for a sound piece of work.   The overall tonal quality is very pleasant.   Attention to detail is good, without being overdone.

Budding Life

Photography

   The beautiful vibrant colours drew me to this image immediately and upon closer inspection I was compelled by what I saw.   I have seen many images from the American Slot Canyons, however this one is quite unique with the sand falling.
 
All elements work in perfect harmony, exposure, depth of field and sharpness, are spot on.
An exemplary image.

2014 Winners

Oils / Acrylics

 At first glance perhaps an unlikely subject, sunlight and shadow across the back of buildings, informal vagaries of backyards, washing lines, etc.  A well ordered composition leads our eye around the picture from the strongly contrasted focal point.  The picture shows an understanding of the principles of aerial perspective.  Strong colours in the foreground trees, cooling and lightening in tone as they recede to the background.  Cool greens balanced by warm orange of the buildings.
#144 Elise Hurst "Afternoon Light Princes Hill"
Commended: #332 Gregory R Smith“A Collection Well Noted”

Watercolours

 This painting has a breadth and simplicity – most economical clear washes with a minimum of marks to convey considerable complexity. Lilac, yellows and greys are the colour ensemble
#321 Julie Simmons "The Bridge Hotel"
Highly Commended #204 Jan Long"Echidna"

Pastels

 Here is a masterly pastel work in the time-honoured classical tradition.  An anatomical study in the tonal tradition – illusionistic rendering of light on objects and space.

"Nude Warm Light"

Drawing

 A bold coloured pencil drawing of an outcrop of weathered granite.  Drawings come in many forms.  This piece shows a miniaturistic attention to fine detail – a modulated blue orange colour scheme pervades and an obvious labour has been revealed as effortless.
