Barn Tools by Patrick

Return to Art Contest Summer 2005

Barn Tools by Patrick, age 8.

Judges Comments ~ 1st ~ A unique and interesting take on farm life. Patrick chose to concentrate on the tools of work. What makes this picture stand out is its "close-up" viewpoint, a balanced, but not symmetrical composition and attention paid to drawing the design of the tools accurately.

Farm Scene by Tommy

Return to Art Contest Summer 2005

Our Farm By Tommy. Age 10.

Judges Comments ~ 2nd ~ This drawing looks like a celebration. Bright colours, huge sun, animals on every surface and in every window, make this a picture that a viewer can keep coming back to. The hill behind looks like a backdrop or stage that helps to showcase the barn and farmyard scene.

Paint Horse by Riley

Return to Art Contest Summer 2005

Paint Horse in the Barnyard by Riley, age 11. Quesnel, B.C.

Judges Comments ~ 3rd ~ This is a delightful portrayal of a horse. One can imagine that this horse, although tame, is rearing up in playfulness. Soft colours create a calm feeling. The use of brown in more than one area helps the picture feel unified.
