Firstly apologies for the delay in announcing the results of my Wealie Arts Halloween Colouring Competition, but the dreaded flu and a few late entries meant I’ve only just gotten around to judging and publishing them.
Thank you to everyone that entered the competition I had a difficult, but fun time judging, so much so that I couldn’t decide on just one winner, but more on that in a minute. As the standard of the entries was so high I will be emailing a pdf copy of the halloween colouring book to everyone who entered.
There are three winners in three different age brackets, Millie Claridge in the 5 to 6 bracket, Sean O’Sullivan in the 7 to 8 bracket and Ashley Knight in the 9 to 10 bracket. The winners prize is to request for me to draw their very own zentangle doodle art design on whatever subject they would like. Once I’ve completed the drawing requests I will post the pictures on the website and then post the originals out to the winners
I really loved how Millie incorporated some mixed media elements into her design and at 5 years old I think she has done an excellent job of colouring it in so brightly. Any witch would be tickled pink to wear a hat like this.
What I liked best about Sean’s entry was his great use of colour and how he really gave the hat a face with his bold and bright use of colour. I also liked how Sean used vibrant wax crayons.
Ashley really went to town on her design using sequins and glitter mixed media elements, but also colouring in the background, which I thought was really wonderful and she even sent me the original picture in the post when she must have really loved it.
The Runner Ups
Tia’s entry was lovely and bright and again made some great use of mixed media. I really liked how Ruby Elena went with a colour scheme and made good use of white space. Ned used cooking oil to give the paper a translucent effect when put up to a window or the light and I really liked his witchy green colour.
Joelle used pencils and created a beautiful colour scheme. Isobel had a great use of colour blocking that really made elements of the hat stand out. Charlotte went for a bright and vibrant colour scheme and I liked how she incorporated her own patterning into the mix.
Anya created an incredibly bright and colourful design and put in some incredible detail. I really liked how Amy creatively used black on her design and the eyes look really spooky. Olivia went for bold colours and patterning, dressing up her picture with stars.
Eleanor used some good colour blocking techniques and the dark green really offset the pink and yellow. I really liked how Lauren added in some star stickers onto her drawing and had really good colouring in between the lines.
Thanks again to everyone for entering the competition
