WHY IT WON: This was seriously one of the hardest Art Challenges to judge yet! So many amazing pieces that it was difficult to say one was better than the other, but there was no escaping the attention to detail you gave to each and every element, from the flowers and leaves to the hair. Those flowers that change from green to purple are breathtaking! It is interesting that you chose to keep the colors more muted, but it is all cohesive and it gives it a true fall feeling. Congratulations on your fist win!

BEGINNER WINNER - Dalida Vernier

WHY IT WON: I am fascinated by this piece and can’t stop looking at it. I love your creative touch with making her into another species. The eyelashes are fantastic with the reflection of the shine. We feel that you did a great job selecting which colors to push in value and which to pull back on to make the focus be on the face. I think the painterly background works for this, but it could use a little refining on the shoulder where it falls a little flat compared to the rest of the piece – something that you can easily work on. Just lovely.

JUNIOR WINNER - Grace Hopkins, age 14

WHY IT WON: It looks like you had a lot of fun with this and we love how you added the staff! Great job taking on so much detail, but would like to see you slow down and work a bit more on the background. Keep drawing!
