Alison Mitchell creates in a broad range of materials – watercolour, oils, sculptures, but is consistent throughout in working directly from life. Alison will have the honour of being the 2018 Rotary Club of Victor Harbor Art Show judge.
“It is usually some visual effect that entices me to paint; a particular combination of colour, light, or an appealing tonal contrast. It is the roundness and sheen of fruit, the compositional possibilities of a landscape or a particular twist or angle in a model’s body,” Alison said.
Alison has been a finalist in a number of national art awards, including the Portia Geach Memorial Portrait Prize, the Heysen Landscape Prize, The Fleurieu Landscape Prize and Food and Wine Art Prize.
She has judged a variety of art shows and a selection judge for the $85,000 Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize in 2011.
