Winning Artists in the Painters-Online and VisitWoods Bluebell Painting Competition Announced

Dawn Farley
Posted on 20 Jun 2012

The recent painting competition where we invited artists to paint bluebells this spring in association with VisitWoods attracted over 100 entries. Choosing just ten winners from so many fantastic paintings was really difficult; you can see all of the entries by clicking here.

Each of the ten winning artists will receive a £20 voucher to spend at Painters'books.

The team from VisitWoods, an online woodland database of the UK’s woods which you are welcome to visit, led by The Woodland Trust, were a little anxious about judging as they are not artists. They do however know their woods extremely well and can appreciate a well captured woodland scene. So the VisitWoods top five paintings are as follows:

Tortoishell Woods, Near Bourne, Lincolnshire, mixed media, (49x33cm)
By Bob Armstrong

Heavenly Perfume, Langdon Country Park, Essex, watersoluble oil, (51x41cm)
By Sandra White

Bluebells, detail, watercolour
By Peter Welton

Bluebell Path, acrylic, (61x91cm)
by Paul Searson

Bluebells, Wayford Woods, Somerset, acrylic, (35x45cm)
By Lee Allen

The Painters-Online team found it difficult to choose as we all liked so many of the entries! Here are the five paintings on which we all agreed:

Spring Green, mixed media, (54x74cm)
By Bridget Winterbourne

Bluebell Wood
By Sandra Price

Bluebells at Collin Park Wood, Gloucestershire, watercolour, (30x21cm)
By Belinda Morgan

Bluebells, Edenbridge, Kent, mixed media, (24x36cm)
By Terry Carter

Parc Lye Bluebells IV, Enys Gardens, Penryn, Cornwall, acrylic, (30x30cm)
By Jane Howard

All of the artists who entered the competition have been invited to display their work on the VisitWoods website, and Leisure Painter and The Artist will each be featuring one of the winning paintings in the August 2012 magazines.
