Congratulations to Abi McLarty who has been selected as a 2023 finalist:

Kingfishers are Abi’s favourite birds. Seeing their flash of colour as they fly past is a rare treat. Abi wanted to capture both the movement and colour of this magnificent creature.

Visual Description - An acrylic painting of a Kingfisher in flight. The bird is central in the picture and is blue and orange. The bird is on a blue background. On the right of the painting are splatters of yellow, orange, white and dark blue.
