Oil or Acrylic painted as oil
"Bungle-Bungles"  by Cheryl Kirby

Judge’s Comment:
“A painting I was drawn back to, finding
more to look at each time.
I love the eye-catching discord of the
colour palette.
The deep intensity of the gully contrasts
with the quiet barren areas, which hold
and coerce me back into the focal point.”
