Water-Colourby Sina Woolcott (reduced from the original, 21 inches × 16 inches).
It is obvious in the water colour painting above that the artist, Miss Sina Woolcott, has passed the stage of her development where technique was a problem. This enables her to concentrate on the creative side of her craft and develop the vision which lifts painting above the average or the ordinary. Miss Woolcott must have worked hard and often to get so far and it is pleasing to see that her talent has been rewarded. She has been awarded the 1950 National Travelling Scholarship in Art by the Association of New Zealand Art Societies. This Scholarship enables her to study abroad for two years. The grant is £1000 and a representative from each Art Society throughout New Zealand is selected to act as one of the judges. Miss Woolcott was finally chosen from the eighteen entrants to the competition. At some future date we hope to reproduce some examples of her painting done while she is abroad.
