Paddy Wilkinson – Fantastic glowing yellow on the lemons and the combined shape of the cast shadow really gives us that sense of directional light

Anne Wilkinson – Love the handling of the form shadow on the lemons and of the texture in the foreground had created interest and context to the setup

Peter Ballantyne – I really like the subtle difference between the cast shadow and the wooden chopping board to give us a sense of light, yet still working within a compressed colour range.

Ariel Selig –  Really great brushstrokes which have captured that lovely sense of sunlight hitting the subject. This is Ariel’s first painting, fab job!

Bob Hagger – These are looking fantastic! Love the way the cast shadow and form shadows work brilliantly together and the muted purple background really brings the piece together, great job!

Eddie New –  Love the sense of form and brushwork on the lemons, the details in cast shadows work really well.

Kathleen Georgopoulos  –  Great drawing and painterly feel, I love how balanced the colours are within the piece, it works brilliantly.

Lisa Laufer – These are looking fantastic! The lemons have really come together well with the changes in the form being so well-judged.

Tulips Still Life

Michael Hancock

Barbara Boettcher

Peter Ballantyne – The turquoise looks fab and I really like the sculptural quality of the leaves, great little painting!

Kathleen Georgopoulos –  Well balanced colours, especially working with the turquoise blue of the chair which is quite a tricky one to match, great job! The red of the tulips really ‘pop’

Eddie New – The tulips look great and really fantastic handling of the greens in the leaves with the warms and cools working really well next to each other.

Eddie New –  The subtle jug colours all play off each other

Lawrence Driscoll – I like how the clear differences in the hue that bring the form of the jug out towards the viewer

Peter Ballantyne – Really good job of observing the very subtle shifts in hue, nice brushwork too.

Bob Hagger – I absolutely love this stylised feel to the jugs, reminds me of a Morandi! Nice work Bob!
