“Hidden Gems” Challenge
“The challenge was to find small, sometimes overlooked details that are all around us but can make incredibly interesting paintings when isolated and examined.
The paintings here have fulfilled the brief very well indeed.
I particularly like the ones that depict small industrial, rusting items, old rope etc. And also the carefully studied, old warehouse door…..perfect subject matter.
Some of the other results featuring plants and flowers show how much interest can be drawn out of simple, ‘everyday’ objects.
Congratulations to all of the artists.”
