THE GREYFRIARS TROPHY FOR THE BEST WATERCOLOUR

Corfe Castle Sunrise by John Collins
A powerful and evocative image, which creates a real sense of atmosphere. I appreciate the skilful use of washes, wet into wet and wet onto dry, and to differentiate hard and soft edges. Well done.
Corfe Castle Sunrise by John Collins Snow over Hartland by Jen Oulton Runner up:
Snow over Hartland by Jen Oulton
I really like Jen’s confident use of coloured washes to create a fluid and atmospheric painting, using a limited palette. The textured paper and the ink really capture the driving movement of the snow.


THE JAN MURRAY TROPHY FOR THE BEST OIL PAINTING

Brixham Harbour by Barry Caygill
The sheer vibrancy of this painting is joyful to see. Barry has communicated the strength of the light and shadows really well. I particularly like the variety of mark-making, especially in the foreground, taking this representative painting into a more individual style.
Brixham Harbour by Barry Caygill Harbridge Watermeadows at Dusk by Susan Sutherland Runner up: Harbridge Watermeadows
at Dusk by Susan Sutherland
I can really feel the atmosphere in this dynamic painting. Confident mark-making, a wonderful use of texture, and a dramatic palette are used beautifully.


THE COURTICE MILLENNIUM PLATE FOR THE BEST PASTEL

The Thinker by Rona Little The Thinker by Rona Little
This is a beautiful and sensitive painting. The longer I gaze at this painting, the deeper I am drawn in to the subject; an emotional connection. Lovely handling of texture and light, using a limited palette.

A Forest Walk by Barbara Rousseau
Runner up:
A Forest Walk
by Barbara Rousseau
This painting is very evocative of my walks in the Forest. Barbara has captured the rich, deep hues of Autumn, with little flashes of complementary hues to make it zing. Strong design and hues.

THE MASON-SMITH TROPHY FOR THE BEST ACRYLIC

Living Fossil and Red Admiral by Ann Squire
Living Fossil and Red Admiral by Ann Squire
A beautiful painting. I love the physical layers in the paint-handling and picture surface, and the echoed rhythmic shapes. The poetic suggestion to me of time passing, and nature’s cycles. Technically and poetically lovely.

Runner up:
White Horse by Linda Fisher (Boddy)
White Horse by Linda Fisher (Boddy)Linda has created a powerful and sensitive painting.
The paint handling is really nice to see, a variety of mark-making, beautiful eyes and ears, but the rest of painting is not overworked.

THE JUBILEE TROPHY FOR THE BEST PAINTING
IN ANY OTHER MEDIUM

The Old Matriarch by Cathy Beggs
This is an exquisite drawing, showcasing technical mastery of her medium.

The Old Matriarch by Cathy Beggs Exmoor by Myrna Yates Runner up:
Exmoor
by Myrna Yates
I like the way Myrna has worked with the textures and allowed each medium to move, working with it intuitively. The little flashes of orange work great with the cooler hues and the darker sky.

THE MOLLIE STEVENS TROPHY FOR THE BEST MINIATURE

Who, Me? by Ann Nolloth
Who, Me? by Ann Nolloth
I’m drawn to the understated palette in this painting, which allows the sensitive rendering of the different textures to really speak for themselves. Really nice!


On a Summer's Day by Suzan Houching
Runner up:
On a Summer's Day by Suzan Houching
A good use of design and storytelling.

THE HARRY JOHNS TROPHY FOR THE MOST ORIGINAL WORK

Boulder Abstract by John Ridge
Boulder Abstract by John Ridge
This painting keeps calling me back to look at it: I am drawn into the space and the movement of the shapes which flow into each other, punctuated by hard and soft edges. A skilful display of design, palette and imagination.

Runner up:
Pots and Plants by Teresa Rogers
I love Teresa’s style; the layers of pattern and texture are a wonderful tapestry of vibrant colour. A really joyful painting!

Pots and Plants by Teresa Rogers

THE SAM HOLLAND TROPHY FOR THE
MOST IMAGINATIVE PAINTING

Swaying Sound of the Sea by Judith Warbey
I love the layers of colour and fluid media, which Judith uses with a flowing design to suggest the movement of the sea. The lyric aspect brings more layers to its evocation.
Swaying Sound of the Sea by Judith Warbey
Fox (Henry) by Elvie O'Hanlon Runner up:
Fox (Henry)
by Elvie O'Hanlon
I think this is a charming and delightful sculpture. Fox is full of character, his pose and his face make him come to life. Great texture and colour too.
