Lisvane Art Workshop
The Ted Martin Memorial Trophy
Three of Dimitri’s acrylic paintings tied for first place in 2012, all scoring eight votes. They were ‘Sizzling Salsa’ (above left), ‘Silver Shadow’ (above right) and ‘I’m Just Walking The Dog’ (centre).
For the first four years of the competition, visitors were simply asked to name their favourite painting, the winner being the artist of the painting scoring the most votes. However, in two of the four years, this resulted in a tie between two or more paintings. So, for the 2014 competition, in order to avoid a tie, visitors were asked to name their three favourite paintings, points being awarded 3-
Beryl Pepperell was a popular winner in 2013 with her watercolour of ‘Chepstow’ (left) with 8 votes while Ian Philpot won again in 2014 with a watercolour of ‘Cwm Cae, Cader Idris’ (right), which scored 27 points on the new scoring system.
Trevor Hill was the winner in 2015, with his watercolour painting ‘Winter Sun’, scoring 9 points, back on the old scoring system.
This pastel copy by Noelle Walsh of an album cover rewarded her with the Trophy in 2016, scoring 11 points.
