Red Challenge: time to vote

November 30, 2010

The November painting challenge theme was: Red, and we’ve had some really great entries.

Please take time to look through them all A to G and use our form (link at bottom of page) to score each out of a possible 10 for how well they meet the theme (Red) and out of another 10 for style.

Remember this not about ‘the best painting’. Award style points for overall look, concept, awesome pose, cool base etc.

Please leave some helpful and friendly comments for each of our entrants, this is the place to leave tips, or point out (nicely) where to make improvements to improve the piece.
