PRO/ADVANCED WINNER - Dominika Kowalczyk


Why it won:

It may seem at first that we selected this as the winner based on the additional bird and although we love, love that second lilac roller, it is really your skills that once again that carried this to the top. We held it against our favorites and determined this the winner even without that extra effort but with it – it just blew us away! You were able to successful capture all the nuances to this image, including the features, eyes, branch, and leaves. Critique would be primarily the crop. We would have liked to have seen a little more room at the bottom of the artwork and right side, as it might be a problem when framing and could be improved compositionally, secondly perhaps more sky color. A pleasure to have you enter this!

BEGINNER/STUDENT WINNER -Abigail Jones


Why it won:

This guy’s got personality! We love the close up and the daring crop. The feathers look soft and fluffy and you feel like you could hold your finger out and have this lilac roller perch on it! The details in the leaves are really incredible and the addition of the berry’s are a excellent yet not over-stated. Great job on the wood as well. The blend of colors on the birds chest especially is beautiful and really adds depth to the feathers! Our critique would be to have added some color to the background, this might have helped the bird pop a little, especially as it is light in color towards the top of it’s head. We hope to see more from you!
