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.
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.
