1st place

Autumn Glow by Sandie Brown

The judges’ comments: “We were struck by the gorgeous transparent colour and the original composition. Well
done, Sandie!”

2nd place

Figure Study by Jean McKinnon

Jean attends an untutored life drawing group at Inverlochy House in Wellington. She loves the challenge and goes
home with numerous drawings. She painted this work in her home studio, based on her sketches.

3rd place

Eight Bells by Amanda Brett

Eight Bells is a demonstration painting done at one of my workshops recently. I find working boats captivating with all the dirt and muck, rust, grease and general detritus! I was particularly drawn to the dark background behind the white boat, great fodder for negative painting.
