Congratulations to Phil Rowell who has been selected as a 2023 finalist:

Print title Ice Cream

Phil has painted an abstract portrait using watercolours - trying to capture a windy day on the beach and the emotion of taking the first bite. Phil was practising different mixing techniques and brush applications to achieve this.

Visual Description – A watercolour painting of a face in profile looking to the right. The face is bright colours, light blues, yellows, orange, and red. The very stylised hair is blowing to the left and is of the same colours. The background is white.
