Oils / Acrylics

This lovely oil is traditional painting at it’s best. The diagonal composition draws the eye into this peaceful scene. Great attention has been paid to foreground, middle ground and distance with repeated colours completing a very beautiful piece.

#240 WALTER MAGILTON “Waiting for Tide-Rise”
Highly Commended:
#215 Ian Laurens
“Morning Cuppa”

Highly Commended:
# 142 Jeff Hastings
“Hide & Seek”

Highly Commended:
#152 Glen Hoyle


This beautifully executed watercolour shows not only skill but also a quirky sense of mischief. One can feel the atmosphere through the intense blue of the sky but the oversize pegs are the stars of this work. It’s all in the title!

# 113 Grant Gittus “Not Like Us”
Highly Commended:
# 366 Doreen Shaw
“Farm House Breeze”

Highly Commended:
# 442 Malcolm Webster
“Fast Terowie”


I couldn’t fault this excellent pastel. Depicting the figure or portrait (and this is both) is so exacting it has to be right but there is more. Composition and the technique plays a huge part in the end result.

# 406 Rosemary Todman-Parrant “Romantic”
Highly Commended:
# 8 Lynne Bechervaise
“Edible Landscape 1”

Highly Commended:
# 275 Lyn Mellady
“Bayside Afternoon”

Highly Commended:
#308 Lynette Palmer
Blossom Visitor”


The use of the space is what attracted me to this superb drawing. By allowing the bird to be free, not bound by edges but emphasising the strengths in the main parts of the composition. This is a sure winner.

#221 Cherie Leeden “Survival”
Highly Commended:
295 Adrian Neill
“The Algerians”

Highly Commended:
#205 Elena Kolotusha
