The prize for the Artful Kids competition was a piece of styled artwork created from your child's painting or drawing. The winning entry, complete with photograph, was revealed in the last post, so this time I thought I would display a photo of the styled artwork created from that entry. The image will be presented on a 30x42cms canvas, and would normally be worth £95.00. I omitted the stripey pot, because as a 3-dimensional object, it doesn't translate too well onto a 2-dimensional artwork. It's for this reason that collages are not really suitable for the process. Also, I considered that it was the flowers which were the really personal and distinctive part of the artwork, so I decided to focus on those. Obviously the finished canvas won't have the Artful Kids watermark on it!
