    i love Bec Winnels work, it is so beautiful and would like great on my wall. 'VICTORIYA' is really beautiful. The detail on the hat is amzing with all the different things going on with it. The girl in it is also so beautiful like beyond anyone girl I have ever seen. Would be more then honoured to hang this on my wall.

    Hope to win, Murphy xo

    I love Bec's work, so inspiring and detailed. I love the Bannie print, the linework is amazing.

    I relly like the Viktoriya one, so detailed and pretty <3

  11. emma.dalzell@hotmail.com

    My fave is "Laura" the detail is so amazing and true to life it almost looks like a photograph. The colours are incredible. I have loved Bec's work for ages, truly beautiful! x

    I love "Smoky eyes and bed hair" and "lost in translation" either one would be fab. I find the girls depicted in them really intriguing like they have a story behind them. The colours and tones used will go great with the mood of my room x

  13. Oh Soné, what a wonderful giveaway! I couldn't think of anything I would like to win more than one of Bec Winnel's beautiful works of art :) Thank you so much for giving us this opportunity!

    I have been in love with Bec's many talents ever since I saw one of her breathtaking portraits on Blanket, back in 2009. Ever since then I have been in awe of her sensibility, creativity and wonderful technique to convey poetry and magic into art. If I win, I will choose In the Absence, so that I can frame it and hang it in my favourite place of the little house I live in. This piece is absolutely amazing and it has so many elements which are dear to me... I have always been a horsey sort of girl and there is nothing in the world that can compare to the heart-pounding happiness I felt when my old horse Teddy and I went for long rides around the farm back in Brazil. The girl portrayed by Bec actually reminds me a lot of my best friend, who now lives on the other side of the world and who I have the opportunity to see only once a year. I miss her incredibly! And the rainbow... Ahhhh, rainbows truly are my favourite thing!

    All of my fingers will be crossed from now on!

  14. i like "long lashes" because it represents courage, strength and a good personality

  15. Smoky eyes is stunning, plus im OBSESSED with feathers!! wonderful works from a extremely talented lady :)


  16. long lashes & in the absence are both such dreamy pieces


  17. Wow I love all of her prints, but I think my fave is 'illusionists'.

    The image gives such a whimsical, romantic vibe that would work perfectly in a fresh white frame on my bedroom wall.

    Wonderful little competition!

  18. Wow thanks Polli for such a delicous giveaway!!!! I am pretty much utterly obsessed with Bec and her girls and if was to be the lucky winner I would LOVE the "Eternity" print xo

  19. What an awesome giveaway! I LOVE her art. She's such a talent. I think my favourite is Eternity - it has a certain haunting beauty to it that draws me in.

    I love the illusionists. Well, who am I kidding... I love ALL of them! Bec Winnel = the best. I like the illusionists because of the engaging connection you (as a viewer) feel through they're eyes. It's sensual/ethereal/eerie all in one amazing illustration.


  21. I love Bec's work, she's amazing!
    Silk Cocoon is very fab. And so is Smokey Eyes. Oh dear! Pretty hard to pick a favourite in fact! They have such a lovely ethereal quality, are so pretty, and so well executed. Pretty amazing talent.

  22. I'd love Eternity! I love Bec Winnel, I've got 2 of her illustrations already framed and hanging in my bedroom, and gave one for a friends b'day last year. Was so tempted to keep for myself as a set of three would look amazing! Her work is breathtaking. Would definitely we one of my favourite illustrators! x


  23. I would first like to say that the BANNIE piece was the first one I saw and subsequently that made me completely enamored with her work. If I had a copy of it on my wall, it would inspire me daily even more to become the artist I've been striving to for years. She's incredibly talented and I hope one day someone will be interested in my artwork too!


  24. I love silk cacoon she looks so peaceful and calm

  25. I love Saint Morganna - I love its surreal, sparkly and alluring feel xxo cgresty@gmail.com

  26. I just adore Bannie, Bec's work is so real, the eyes seem alive and the mouths look as through they have just been kissed , seems very dreamlike, every painting is the perfect woman and there is one to please everyone. Beautiful, enticing, romantic, very unique styling.


  27. Ooh love these!

    Niadia would be my pick! The smokey eyes, the roses and braid just does it for me :) LOVE!


  28. I loved Smokey Eyes--I found the details to be amazing. I could see it here on one of my walls. khinote@gmail.com

  29. I LOVE "Smokey Eyes and Bed Hair" because it was the first drawing that bec showed me while i was doing work experiance with her and i was just AMAZED at how beautiful and intricate her drawing was and since then it has inspired me too try and create this type of feminene photorealism in my own drawings. =)


  30. Bec Winnel is Amazing! I love 'smokey eyes' - it is ethereal and tells a story.

  31. I would buy 'In the Absence'.
    Horses and rainbows - its what every girl dreams about!! So, so pretty :)

  32. Her prints are breathtaking! I love Bannie.

  33. i adore them all but if i had to choose one it would be the lovely Niadia. A close second is Red Lips, she is beautiful. I would love to buy these ladies so i can have a little bit of prettiness on my wall.


  34. If I could have any, I would choose 'The illusionist". It is the most beautiful illustration i have ever seen. I am moving house soon and it would b so lovely to have that print as the first piece of art to decorate our new home

  35. oooh, it would have to be 'laura'. so hard to pick one, they are all beautiful.

  36. Eternity, great composition & shading...

  37. Dear heaven, moon and stars... Bec's work is insane! As a fellow artist I can appreciate how much time and dedication it takes to put out something like this.. and her attention to detail, shading and the overall feeling of the image is incredible.

    I am so happy that I stumbled upon your blog. First off, I'm head over heels o b s e s s e d with it, and second WHO DOESN'T LIKE FREE STUFF? Ha, I know I sure do.

    I'm in the process of redoing my room and "Intermission" would look absolutely perfect on my wall. As shallow as it is to judge someone by the way they look/what's on the outside.. I think the girl in this print is someone I would like to be/hang out with. The spirit that is embodied within the print is one of bliss, pure and true happiness.. euphoric almost. Not only that, but I think it captures my outlook on life perfectly, "Renew your mind and let your light shine." Clearly this girl is one with the world, experiencing each and every moment and is truly painting with the colors of the wind.

    Okay, that may have sounded a bit odd, but it makes sense in my head.. I think what I'm trying to say is the print captures how I feel when someone else can see the world/appreciate it through my eyes and can see all that God has created. Basically, how I feel when others embrace all that he has provided.

    I would love to have this print as a daily reminder on my wall.
