JURORS STATEMENT:

“I look for the level of technical accomplishment, good drawing skills, a
skillful approach to the composition, lost and found edges, and working with values.
Most important, I evaluate whether a painting is a clean, fresh and confident watercolor
followed by the creative expression of the artist. To move a painting from simply
copying a photograph to art, the artist needs to express an experience, an emotion, or
try to tell a story.‚ÄĚ
