Judges comments

(Peter Smales)

Prize Value

Best Painting in the Show (Acquisitive)

'Blairgowrie' by Craig Davy



"A highly stylised but evocative view of Bridgewater Bay, Sorrento, sensitive and subtle use of colour."


Best Oil Painting

'Collins St. Winter' by Chris White



"A strong composition, a lesson in perspective with an extraordinary technical skill.  A pleasing balance of warm and cool colours."


Best Pastel/Acrylic Painting

'Female Figure Study 7' by Linda Robertson



"The picture strikes a balance between modelling form and energetic rhythmical line."


Best Watercolour Painting

'A day at the Beach' by Malcolm Beattie



"Light and movement in simple clean washes – the charm of watercolour."


Best Contemporary Painting, any medium

'Valley View' by Dan Villiers



"While this painting obviously displays spatial recession, it has strongly decorative and two dimensional qualities – a high horizon and flat pattern-like mark making and rich colour harmonies."


Best Painting to the value of $1000, any medium

'Foraging Bee No.2' by Debra Lee Waters



"Illusionistic realism - there is exquisite detail in this difficult, one-way medium."


Best Painting to the value of $800, any medium

'Bicheno Bay' by Pamela Pretty



"A rich, loose and free rendering in pastel allowing the process and medium to jostle and spar with the subject matter."


Best Painting to the value of $700, any medium

'Wallander' by Anne Wallace



"An ambitious undertaking handled with great skill to achieve a penetrating and unified portrait."
