Winners of the 2013 London Art College Competition revealed!

We are pleased to announce this years winner and runner up for our 2012 London Art College Art competition. All of the tutors and admin staff who attended this years annual conference had the difficult task of choosing a winner and runner up out of the finalists that had been voted for and selected by all tutors a week prior to the conference. All of the pieces of artwork were viewed on a giant projector and discussed during the meeting.

The voting was very close and however much we would like every student to win, the winner was Emma Allans Row, Row, Row your boat pictured below. I have added a full version of the illustration along with a close up of the left and right side. What an amazing illustration it is, there are so many things going on its just a joy to look at, technically well painted and the creativity in this piece is just wonderful. We would like to congratulate Emma on a fantastic piece of artwork

Our runner up was Judy Elizabeth Wilson with her superbly painted Tree of Life. If you study the image below you can see the painting in its exquisite detail. The thought that went into this piece, the designing, composition etc is excellent, the intricate details of the animals – just superb.

So there we have it for another year. The response to this years competition was overwhelming, we would officially like to thank all of our students who entered. We would also like to thank Emma and Judy for writing about their paintings and their experiences on the London Art college courses – View our winners pages to read their full stories >>

Illustrating Children’s Books…Row, Row, Row…..

Having seen this illustration posted in our student forum, I thought it would be a fabulous one for the blog and student gallery. I have added the full illustration of the ‘Row, Row, Row your boat’ painting below, along with a close up of one side of the painting so that you can see the textures and colours in more detail. Congratulations to this student for a great piece of artwork!
