Spider Awards honours Andrew John


I have just won Nominee for the 4th year running, fantastic to know the judges are still liking my work. I also have this portrait in colour so I will be putting it in the Color Awards. I’m curious to see if it will do as well.  I would like to know your preferences on the colour versus black white.
