Theme Week Challenge - Evolution (31/3/08)

Every fortnight members are given a theme. They have the next 2 weeks to paint/create something to that theme. These challenges are completely voluntary. Submissions must be original, be of any size, medium or style and be completed during the 2 week time-frame.

Members vote at the end of the challenge for the "People's Choice" and "Most Creative use of Theme" awards. The winners are displayed on the front page of the NZ Art Guild website for 2 weeks. They will now also be displayed on this blog.

The following paintings were the winners of the "EVOLUTION" theme (31/3/08), incorporated with this theme was the use of a palette knife.
