The Foxglove – Winner

Foxglove Challenge – mini competition 1

A big thank you to the participants of our first Mini -Competition. The entries provided us with range of very beautiful styles to choose from starting with the botanically realistic, others moody, and ethereal and an intensely coloured collage.

The winner receives a £50.00 voucher to spend at Brambles Art Retreat. The voucher is valid for 12 months. It can be used to purchase a piece of artwork or put towards the cost of a course.

The winning painting by Penny Whaley – Watercolour and Pen.

We chose Penny’s Painting because of its delicate ethereal style. Not too realistic, not too abstract, such lovely flower patterns and delicate bud shapes. Starting off realistic in the sky then merging into a sea of flower heads. The focal point on the lower left of centre, with the intensity of colour and pattern, not repetitive, but flowing. We love the colour of the flowers and the the use of layering to add strength and intensity.
Congratulations Penny!
