First off let me say it was an honor and a pleasure to be a part of the selection process.  I wanted to be sure that I didn’t miss anything so I called in a ringer, my 8 year daughter who loves all things art and color. 
The first picture was very beautiful. We loved the way the contestant uses different colors inside the thought bubble. I also enjoyed the way the contestant used different colors to create a floral pattern on the table cloth, which was very creative.  Lastly we felt the colors used on the family at the table and the backdrop are very strong.

Great job artists but number 1 is the winner! The additional details of the tablecloth and scenic kitchen view were captivating. This is a step above coloring and flows into artistry. The family looks like they are cultured and possibly Latino. The artist even put thought into a wristband for dad and collar for mom’s top. This is a beautiful coloring and I hope to see more from them in the future!

Morning! I chose this one. Love the added details and the care took in designing the table cloth. The choice of colors are chosen with care.

The 2nd picture is also very beautiful. I love the colors that were chosen, green, yellow, blue and Brown. We also love how the child decided to allow the colors to flow freely meaning yellow lamp, yellow pillow, yellow headboard, really lets me know that the child likes to match colors, something my daughter really enjoys also.  Likewise, for the color blue, the bed spreads and the curtains match each other. I believe that this child has paid close attention to the detail, maybe in their own house, to recreate this masterpiece.
With great consideration me and my worthy assistant have decided that picture 1 would be our winner.  Both pictures were top notch and both contestants and their families should be very proud!

This page seems to be a younger artist. I really like the coordination of curtains matching the cover and sheets and the yellow with the headboard, pillowcase and lamp. Nice wood floors also! Pretty 😍 I would have liked to see more items colored in so it didn’t feel incomplete but maybe that was intentional. I’m not sure. 🤔 I am hopeful that they continue working on their artistic skills and continue to grow. This is a great start though. Keep coordinating! Green is my son’s favorite color.

Love her choice of colors and you can tell that she took care in coloring because she stayed within the lines.
