Thanks to everyone who submitted works for this opportunity.
Applications came in from India, The USA, Eastern Europe and the UK. We spent a lot of time looking at and discussing each one.
Our criteria in choosing artists ranged from skills in drawing, creativity, their use of their chosen media and interest in the landscape as a medium of expression. The emphasis was on finding an artist who would most benefit from the workshops and demonstrations, with the potentiality for progress and willingness to contribute to the process of learning.
Because you can’t judge that from a finished artwork, we Skype interviewed all of the artists who made it to the shortlist and to celebration them and their work below are their names and links to their works.
We will announce the actual winner of the scholarship early next week. The decision will not be based on the style of their work or the medium they paint with. It is because of their potentiality for progress and the likelihood that they would bring as much to the table as they received in the process of learning.
