2013 SoHo Fall Colored Pencil Contest Winners

Our Winners are Awesome!

Time to announce some more contest winners. This time, we have the talented sketchers and winners for our 2013 SoHo Colored Pencils Contest. When an artist uses a SoHo Colored Pencil, they get a new experience. These pencils use highly pigmented, vibrant colors and has a superior light resistance for brilliant and lasting works of art. Our contestants used these superior pencils and through their skill, created some real masterpieces. 

Here are our winners:

 

 




First Place Winner

"El Blanco"
by Barbara Dahlstedt

"I've been trying different brands of colored pencils for the past three years and have found SoHo colored pencils to be one of the easiest to work with. The consistency blends smoothly without the need for a colorless blender and the pencils really keep their point. I actually surprised myself when I was able to capture a substantial amount of detail. I also like the fact that you can buy replacement pencils from the open stock and my local store."

 


Second Place Winner

"Anthurium in Bloom"
by Sandy Birkholz

"SoHo Colored Pencils are my go-to colored pencils for my colored pencil artwork. They come in convenient sets, and the colors can be brought separately as well. I love the colors, they way they glide on the paper, and the beautiful finish they have when the artwork is done. They arent as expensive as other pencils either. I recommend them to my artist friends for their own colored pencil work."


 

Third Place Winner

"Blue and Gold Macaw"
by Mother Barbara

"Very nice, smooth pencils makes drawing with SoHo Urban Artist pencils a wonderful experience. The wood is high quality and does not splinter. You can draw very lightly to get good effects with highlights or fill in to create solid shadows. I would highly recommend SoHo Urban Artist pencils to any beginner or professional."

2013 SoHo Fall Painting Contest Winners

Check out the amazing winners of our Fall painting contest!

Its obvious. Our artists have been working hard. When we got the submissions to our Fall 2013 SoHo Urban Artist Painting Contest, lets just say it awhile to tally up the votes. Each contestant painted us something with either SoHo Acrylic Paints or SoHo Oil Paints and we got some incredible works of art. You all are SO talented, it's crazy! We received so many great entries, it took several hard rounds of voting to find our winners, but here's who we decided were the best this year!

 

 

 


First Place Winner

"Tea Time"
by Kyra Wilson

"I first tried SoHo Acrylics as free samples included in my shipment of art supplies. I realized they had a smooth quality and vibrant color, as well as being affordable and have used them ever since."



 


Second Place Winner

"Le Grand Renaud"
by Marcel Franquelin

"Through the years, I've used many different brands of oil paints. Some are too oily, some too thick, or weak in pigment. I worked in a very traditional, realistic manner, and therefore I plan my work and my palette quite carefully. I do not like surprises interfering in my painting strategies. SoHo is definitely among the oil paints I love using, as it is reliable and consistent."

 


Third Place Winner

"Police Cycle"
by Victor Vicini

"The brilliant shades of color available to me by SoHo paints is outstanding! I love the texture and smoothness of the paints. I would definitely recommend SoHo paints to other artists."

 


Lets give a big hand for all of our incredibly talented winners. To see some more great paintings from some of our honorable mentions, see the rest of our SoHo Fall Contest Winners! And keep your eyes peeled for more fun art contests coming next year.
