2. Platz Get Dusty Mai 2017 der Pastel Guild of Europe

Still life with porcelain

 

Mit diesem Pastell (14x23cm) gewann ich den 2. Platz im Mai Wettbewerb Get Dusty Competition der Pastel Guild of Europe 2017. Ich fand das Thema nicht sehr schwierig, aber ich selbst mag Stlllleben nicht besonders. Es gibt wenige, die modern sind und mich faszinieren. Dazu kam, dass ich zu Hause keine geeigneten Porzellangegenstände fand, die mich inspirierten. Daher war die Überraschung besonders groß. Vielen Dank an die Gastjurorin  Sarah Blumenschein!

2.Platz Get Dusty April 2017 der Pastel Guild of Europe

"Explorer" Pastell
"Explorer" Pastell

Jury´s comment by Rita Kirkman:

"Light, color, texture, and a moment captured in time are what I see first in this little wild Explorer. The subtle handling of the warms and cools within the various tones of fur are masterfully done! The wonderful textural contrasts of the finely detailed fur, to the ripples of the water, the middle-ground grasses, and finally the very loose, gestural rocks in the background, create a convincing sense of depth. I like the unconventional pose withing this otherwise traditional portrait composition (the subject centered within the area of the painting.) The cat is looking off to the left, as if something there has caught his attention, and in a moment he will leave the frame. But this doesn't encourage our eyes into leaving; the sunlight streaming on the cat's face holds our eyes, and the bits of dark along his shadowed side and in the background bounce our eyes around and down the right side, and back up the sunny side to his face..."

Juruy´s comment by Margret Evans:

"There  is a  lovely  freshness to  this, with  detail,
yet remaining crisp in colour and value, and very
convincing  movement  to  the  water,  as  well  as
fresh foliage waving in the wind.’

Best of Get Dusty 2015

The guest judge of the competition Adrian Frankel Guiliani comments:

"An intense gaze from this cat was caught in “Watching.”  Very skillful handling of the pastels with a wonderful variety of marks.  The whiskers, done in a multitude of directions, were true to life and exciting to view.  The entire piece has been beautifully handled, from the colors to the fur, to the drawing and textures."

Get Dusty 2. und 3. Platz April 2016 der Pastel Guild of Europe

Im April hatten wir das Thema "Animals underwater" und mit den Referenzfotos von Steve Jones,UK (www.millionfish.com) erreichte ich den 2. und auch den 3. Platz der Competition.

The jury´s comments:

"The friendly giant"

Lynn Howarth said:

"Really like the upward movement in this painting. You get the feeling of

great depth due to good use of colour and tone. I also think the breaking of

the surface of the water is particularly good!’

Dorothea Schulz said:

‘Although  the artist  uses a  very  limited  palette,  this  painting  is anything

but boring. Here, value not only does the work but gets the credit as well.

A beautiful rendering of this visitor from the deep blue."

"Blue Meduse"

Lynn Howarth said:

‘Wonderful use of colour which stands out so well on the black background!’

Susan Corcoran said:

‘The  black  background  just  throws  this  stunning  creature  almost  out  of  the

painting at us!’

 

Honorable Mention GET DUSTY März 2016 The Pastel Guild of Europe

"Magic light", Pastell
"Magic light", Pastell

Jury´s comment by Patrick Henry:

"A  ‘magic  light’  has  been  effectively  rendered with this beautiful choice of harmonious colours. The artist has combined different touches, moving  from  colour  swathes  to  small  details,  most notably in the blue and mauve vegetation."

Honorable Mention GET DUSTY Nov 2015 The Pastel Guild of Europe

Plumeria white
"Beauty of Hawaií" Pastell 22,29,5cm, (D) D.Saul 2015

Judge´s comments: Barbara Heidi Burns

"This painting showcases the flowers in an interesting design; the buds and stems pull meinto the painting. The flowers have interesting shapes and varied. The colours in the flowers are subtle and beautiful.

It is a good example of using colour in white objects. I love the punches of blue and the petals."

Best of GET DUSTY 2015 of the Pastel Guild of Europe

The votes for the best of Get Dusty 2015 were very spread out and no one entry came out top. So the winners, with an equal amount of votes for each one, are

"Rain in Paja" from Dolores Saul and 3 other member pastels.

Die Stimmen zur Wahl des Platzes Best of Get Dusty 2015 waren weit vertreut und kein Bild kam direkt an die Spitze. So gewannen diesmal die vier Beiräge mit der höchsten gleichen Stimmenanzahl.

"Rain in Paia",Pastell
"Rain in Paia",Pastell

Jury´s comment:

 "Funny idea looking on a rainy scene through a window Everything looks really, really wet Love that the colors are so pure even on a rainy day I like that the colours are so clean and pure. I think the painter has achieved the goal, it is very WET and still in a “happy” colour scheme. Good pastelling skills.

1. und 2. Platz Get Dusty Pastel Guild of Europe, April 2015, Animals

Jury´s comment:

"Splash!"

There is a lot of action in this work. Movement and drama! Great work on thefeathers. There is an excellent sense of recession in the background and the waterand feathers have been created with vibrant confident strokes. In my opinion themost delicious part of this painting is where the feathers meet the water and theedges are lost. Fantastic water!

"Asian Beauty"

"This is a beautiful portrayal of a Mandarin duck. Wonderful work on the different types of feathers, they are absolutely fantastic, especially the tail feathers and the wing! I Love the contrast of the detailed work in the bird and the plain background which works really well as contrast. The artist has made full use of the paper colour by leaving the background uncovered and has created a wonderful 3D effect. The ground the bird stands on is merely suggested but looks solid and real."

Get Dusty Winter 14/15,Pastelguild of Europe

Jury´s comment by

"This is again a still life painted with incredible skill and passion. The colour balance is magnificent and textures so real one could almost reach out and squeeze it. I would have liked to see just a small reduction of the intensity of the reflection towards the bottom of the painting, just to improve the balance a little."

1. Platz Get Dusty Pastel Guild of Europe November 2014, Landscape nocturne

"Ho ´okipa Beach at night" Pastell
"Ho ´okipa Beach at night" Pastell
"Ho ´okipa beach at night" The Judges said:
"A limited palette of blue, turquoise and near black with a few wellplaced greenish and reddish accents define this strong and atmospheric night time painting. The strong contrasts give a beautiful shimmer to the picture and the composition is well balanced. The water and rocks are beautifully described and the format is very well chosen for this lively piece, full of movement. One can nearly smell the salt in the air and hear the crashing of the surf against the rock. Well done!"

"Way to Australia",Pastell 24x30cm, (c)D.Saul 2014
"Way to Australia",Pastell 24x30cm, (c)D.Saul 2014

Jury´s comment by Jackie Simmonds:

"The mischievous grin of the girl and the title say it all. One can hear her laugh, almost. Someone is having a lot of fun 'digging herself in'. The texture of the sand and the shadow values are very well handled and there is a real sense of light giving a nice impression of summer on the beach. The difficulty of painting skin tones against a similarly coloured beach background has been successful in this painting, with the tone of the sea allowing the blonde hair to shine in the sun.
