LOCKDOWN JOY

WINNER Karen Whittingham

COMMENT - Another tough class of competition but there was real joy and uplift opening this image to deeply remind us of the privilege of living in the Suffolk countryside, with space, fresh air and sense of freedom when out walking 

during these tough times of lockdown. A classic, big, Suffolk sky with great colour and definition in this simple yet stunning landscape composition.

WHAT LOCKDOWN HAS MEANT

WINNER Edwina Butterton

COMMENT - This black and white image captured much in a single shot. Being in our gardens, being with our children, more time for fun and valuable family time whilst being restricted at home. A mesmerising moment captured.

LATEST WORK OF ART

WINNER Anne Farrell

COMMENT - This picture tells the viewer a story which is left for their interpretation. An ambitious and emotive piece of art with good figuaritive proportion and detail of form

DRAWING IN PENCIL

WINNER Geraldine Millar

COMMENT - I believe an artwork has to not only show technical skill but also originality and stimulation for the viewer. I love the thought provoking of possible age, name, colouring and context that this skilled drawing evokes alongside the obvious drawing talent

BAKING

CELEBRATION CAKE

WINNER Orla Whittingham

COMMENT - One of the toughest classes to judge as all cakes here are fantastic and mouth-watering! We will always think of rainbows representing lockdown as our skies are hopefully now turning blue “over the rainbow’ and this fun, vivid 7 coloured and layered rainbow cake commemorates perfectly this extraordinary time in all our lives
