Judge’s Comment: Very good effort. Excellent painting using an interesting technique.  Good use of colour blending.  I think we have a budding Van Gogh here.

Judge’s comment: So life-like, amazing detail, looks as if he is about to swoop down.  Good background of typical British sky.

Judge’s Comment: Very realistic colours. Great detail on the head especially the beak and the eye.

Judge’s Comment: Good use of colour shading. Lots of minute detail. A few associated leaves to put it in context might have been useful.

Pencil Drawing

Judge’s Comment: Very pleasing composition. Good shadows indicate boats pulled up on the beach in the evening light. Sea and cliffs just discernible in the background. Very good perspective.

Judge’s Comment: Good depiction of a fairly new but definitely worn boot. Lots of interesting detail. I especially liked the ankle tab.
