1st place - On the Road Again No 1 by Colleen Gardener
The control of composition and tone and the use of hard and soft edges on a small scale has been beautifully handled.
2nd place – The Silver Claret by Glenn Smith
A clever composition with lovely interactions between the shapes and a limited monochromatic colour palette. Simple and beautiful.

This lovely subject has a very fine use of pastel. The vulnerability of the subject was captured with feeling and empathy.
2nd Place – That Smirk by Lee Stumer
A very striking facial form with a lovely presentation.
H/C - Pretty in Pink by Gayle Van Der Veen
A beautifully constructed piece showing good technique.
1st place – Leo & Kitty by Christine Parry

2nd place – Autumn by Lyn Condon
This is a fresh portrayal of a natural scene with the shapes and colours combining to make a pleasing image.
H/C – Emu Gully by Ann Window
My eye wandered around this composition finding many areas of interest. Compelling storytelling on a grand scale.
1st place – Corroded by Leon Chester
An interesting composition. I admired the rich tonality and variety of textures which blended with the background while retaining a depth of field and atmosphere.
2nd place – Tanya by Grant Quinn
This image really popped as a slice of reality in such a way that it left me wondering about the subject and the story. Nice composition and cropping. The eye was led on an interesting textural journey.
H/C – One Day Closer To Rain – Peter Van Der Veen
This series of photos really captured a sense of time spent contemplating a place. It conveys distinct emotions which is enhanced by the window framing.
1st place – Old Bull by Justin Allan
A purely representational sculpture showing textures and a good understanding of balance and form.
2nd place – Cruisin’ the Scenic Rim by Darryl Gillum
A humorous sculpture which tells a story. I can see this in many iterations, perhaps even on a larger scale.
H/C- Pelican by Nadine Baldwin
A lovely small sculpture showing control of the medium and a restrained but considered composition.
1st Place – The Snow Gum by Marjorie Tate
This beautiful painting has a lovely subtle limited colour palette and is well constructed in its use of tones and temperature.
2nd Place Hidden Rainbow by Nika Norman
This watercolour is creatively handled allowing the viewer to explore the flow of shapes with hard and soft blending with a pleasing balance of colour.
