Song Writer
by Dmitry Grudsky

Juror's comments:  “Song Writer” by Dmitry Grudsky depicts a young woman with green highlights in her hair surrounded by blues.  Everything, from the loose watercolor work in the girl’s shirt and background (leading the viewer to the girl’s exceptionally crafted face), to the coloring of the girl’s almost translucent skin, and a dreamy look on her face, all work together compositionally - and with it’s unique coloring choices - to create an unearthly quality to this piece.  Everything pulls the viewer to the girl’s eyes; which look dreamily out at the world and leave us wondering what she must be thinking. Exceptional in every way.
