Got to be in it to win it!
In February 2013 I decided to enter my first art competition.
I didn't expect to win anything, I just wanted feedback about my artwork and a more professional critique rather than friends and family who don't always give a truly honest opinion. There were over 300 entrants of varying abilities from beginner through to professional artists.
I entered 3 paintings (see below) one in each of the following categories: Oils, Acrylics and Mixed Media.
I won Best in Show, Best Acrylic, Best Mixed Media and received a Highly Commended in the Oils section.
