Art Competition 2016 Winners

Welcome to the winner and runner up's page for our 2016 London Art College Art competition.

This year we had 107 wonderful entries and we delighted with the standard of the work submitted. We really hope the students who entered enjoyed creating the art as much as we enjoyed seeing and admiring the work produced.


All of the tutors and admin staff who attended this years annual conference had the difficult task of choosing a winner and runner up out of the finalists that had been voted for and selected by all tutors a week prior to the conference. All of the pieces of artwork were viewed on a giant projector and discussed in depth during the meeting. 

Congratulations to this year's WINNER of the London Art College's 2016 Competition 

Shuli Han Dulley with her watercolour called: 'Kingfisher and lilypads'

My name is Shuli Han Dulley and I am currently studying the Watercolour Online Art Diploma Course with tutor Jem Bowden.

I would like to thank all of you in London Art College giving me the opportunity to show my art. I always enjoy doing botanical art, and I have been painting flowers and plants for a few years. The painting I put in to the competition  (58 x 36cm) is one of them. It also including some Chinese elements, as I did Chinese painting when I was in China.

I also like to  paint scenery; I need to loose up the way I paint for scenery. I joined London Art College hoping to get help to improve my scenery painting. I also want to thank to  my tutor Jem Bowden, he has given me a lot of advice for my assignments. I will try my best.

Best wishes
Shuli Han Dulley

RUNNER-UP - Natalia Romankova  with her: 'Giraffe and Lighthouse'.

My name is Natalia Romankova and I am currently studying the Illustrating Children's Book Online Art Diploma with Maggy Roberts

What great news! Thank you very much! My picture is called 'A new friend'. This is the recent one from a series of pictures about Vaska the giraffe. This character was born when I was doing exercises for my first course in London Art College - Illustrating Children Books. Gradually, he became the hero of many of my works. To the moment, I already have 12 published postcards depicting Vaska's adventures.

Vaska lives in a lighthouse at the seaside. He's very creative, positive and he likes to try something new. He is alone on the most of the pictures. I was thinking about a friend for him, but for a long time nothing came to my mind. Once I realized who is this friend and how they met. This is a small seagull living in a nest on the top of the lighthouse. Now they just have to become friends. I've enclosed below some of the pictures about Vaska's adventures. The work is done in watercolour. Some small details are emphasized with a black liner. The size is 36 x 48 cm.

I also want to thank my teacher Maggy Roberts! I feel that studying in London Art Collage changed a lot in my life.

Best Regards,
Natalia Romankova
