ADVANCED WINNER - Carolyn Chua



WHY IT WON:
Wonderful juicy strawberries! This piece only looks better close up and really looks wet in your highlights. Each texture and aspect was thoughtfully executed. The composition is original and you added a nice creative element but it’s really about those details – the shine of the berries, all the colors and fine work in the leaves, the water drops on the bowl and the touch of fuzz. I also have to add how much we liked the blue tablecloth – it really works here, especially with the red tones you selected being pink and peachy. Excellent job Carolyn!

BEGINNER WINNER - Ute Kistner
 

WHY IT WON:
With this piece we are excited to see that Ute has graduated to the Advanced Category and with this you can see why! She took on the whole photo and executed everything with precision! The different color reds for the berries v. the tablecloth was kind of risky but really works and allows the main subject to keep center stage and not just blend into the background. Each strawberry is so excellent and with the background, we can see how this probably took a lot of dedication that pushed you to the top in this group – and that is saying a lot when you look at all the fantastic work. We hope you rock it in the Advanced class next time!
 
JUNIOR WINNER - Athena Bencivenga 11yr 

 

WHY IT WON:
Really look at this strawberry . . . It is amazing how well this 11 year old was able to create dimension with the dark tones on the outer edge, medium tones in the center and very light and white tones in the center to really give this shine and depth, all while working around those seeds. If you really look close you will notice her individual shadows and highlights around the seeds, giving it a real believability. Anyone who took part in this art challenge can especially appreciate this work. We loved that she also included the tablecloth and filled in the entire space. A few suggestions would be to sketch out the lines lightly for the tablecloth first and keep working on the leaves, maybe using a sharper pencil. Love seeing your improvement, you have a fantastic mentor in your mom!
