Winner Portraiture/Figurative – Fiona Coward (Boy, 79) Strong work, the sense of immediacy shows a confident painting.
Highly commended Portraiture/Figurative – Bernadette Carmody (Little Shepherd) A nice use of traditional colours, emotive, lovely modelling on the hands and face.
Highly commended Portraiture/Figurative – Delia Eastland (Image of Audrey, 55) The treatment of the background colours is strong and distinct, confidence in choosing simple lines and their positioning and the selection of effective but limited colours.

Winner Animals – Ross Leggatt (Pelicans at Caloundra) Beautiful movement on the water with the ripples achieved through a clever use of layering colour and shadows. The pelicans fit well with the water and don’t look posed.
Highly Commended Animal – Sean Fitzgerald (The Rooster, 162) Lovely use of vivid colours, wild free brush strokes, there is a liveliness of the Rooster.
Highly Commended Animal – Karen Rose (I’m Watching You, 126) A nice sense of Abstraction in places, the black markings and the colour composition is interesting.

Winner Landscape – Jane Border (Waiting for Rain) – Nice subject matter, is original, stark in a good way, lovely use of light. An interesting addition would be some grass detail in the foreground.
Landscape Highly Commended – Bernadette Carmody (Serenity) – Technically good, poppies help make the composition.

Winner Cityscape – Donna Dix (Outback Barnyard) – Strong confident brush marks, rough painting technique and use of materials reflects the subject matter.
Cityscape Highly Commended – Lynette Stronge (Tobermory, Isle of Mull, Scotland, 114) Nice treatment of distance, architecturally accurate, softness of the distant water, and landscape.
