Two brothers have won a prestigious art award run by the Hereford College of Art.
Oliver and Charlie Miller entered the Brian Hatton Young Artist Competition 2020. Charlie, in 3rd Form, placed First with his portrait and was awarded a £50 prize and a £100 prize for the School. The judges really loved the use of colour and how Charlie had used both painting and drawing to create his piece. They also felt the combination of both portraits was a great idea.
Charlie has now sold a total of 34 framed portrait paintings and has donated £160 to a children’s Charity. He has many more portraits and is planning another exhibition at the end of lockdown.
Oliver, in 4th Form, placed Third and was awarded a £25 prize. The judges commented, “We really liked the combination of drawing and process with this piece. It has great use of foiling and strong use of bright colours”.
“Both Charlie and Oliver are continuing to grow and express themselves in their artwork”, said Head of Art, Sue Fensome. “By entering competitions they are broadening their expertise and are proving to be very capable artists”.
