For our new face painting competition our theme is Underwater World.
You can paint anything from the Underwater World including fish, mermaids, shipwrecks, submarines, coral, sharks and divers and more. Let your imagination run riot and think of something unusual that belongs underwater! We love to see new and creative ideas and designs.

First Place: Riina Driscoll
This view of ladies having fun in the water is such a great, unique interpretation of the theme! The fantastic use of painting techniques and colour creates great movement in the water and life within the scene.
Second Place: Sam Chun
This image has such strong visual impact, nice use of colour, and lovely depth. A great example of how human features can be disguised within a paint. Love the menacing sharky expression!
Third Place: Anne Flynn
This turtle soaring across the sea bed is so atmospheric, the painting style and techniques used create wonderful textures, and capture the beauty of ocean life so well.
