Congratulations to Roberto Visconti for being the winner of last week’s “You Be The Judge” art contest! Roberto’s painting, “The Dancer”, received the most votes in our final weekly contest of the month. This last contest broke the record for the number of votes that came in! Thanks to everyone who took the time to participate in the contest, whether it was submitting your own artwork or voting for your favorite painting.

As the winner of contest #4, Roberto’s entry is now entered into the final contest for a chance to win an entire set of art DVDs. He will also have his choice of which download he would like (either Drawing, Value, Color or Edges) as well as having his winning entry featured on my Facebook page. I’ve included two more examples of his work for you to enjoy as well.

The weekly contests for November are over, but now it’s time to decide who the winner will be in our final contest which begins later today.

Holiday Complete Set


The painting that receives the most votes by midnight EST on Tuesday, December 6, will receive an entire set of instructional art DVDs which also includes “Painting Outdoor Light“, so be sure to vote for your favorite!

Thanks again to everyone who participated in this month’s contests! Because of the tremendous response that I received from others, I’m considering having another contest some time in the future. If this is something that might be of interest to you, just let me know by leaving a comment below.
