  • Emily Russell

Join us in congratulating AAL Contemporary Portraiture student Paul Starns, who won the AAL Drawing Prize 2019 (of £100) with his fantastic life model drawing. Paul’s drawing was commended for its formal accuracy by judge Brendan Kelly. 

We had a number of excellent submissions this year: honourable mentions included Emily Russel’s non-figurative piece, which Brendan felt respected the two-dimensional nature of drawing; Fiona Feng’s life model drawing, which was noted for its consistency and skill; and Minnie Scott’s piece, the only entry which used colour, which was deemed ‘creative, energetic and fearless’. 

Thank you to everyone who entered, and congratulations to our prize-winner Paul!
