Bernie van der Vyver, a well-known artist from Bethal, acted as the judge for the evening.

The following was taken from Bernie’s website:

Born in 1969, Bernie van der Vyver played from an early age with his pencils, paper and clay on a farm in Bethal. He had a passion for Wildlife and was drawing wild animals as soon as he was able to control a pencil. One of his favourite pastimes was to escape to the marshlands where he could mould forms of animals from clay.

During his high school years, he took art as a subject, but his work was considered too realistic to qualify as art. A few years later he took up a subdivision of art: Sculpting as a subject and worked mainly with iron as a medium. He matriculated with a distinction in art and received certificates throughout his schooling years from the Department of Education.

His creativity and passion blossomed in 1999 and he started to draw in soft pastels. His paintings started to sell and he painted on commission until 2005 when he explored oils due to the request by prospective buyers.

His talent is so diverse that he also paints pictorial paintings on commission despite the fact that wildlife is his first love. He also enjoys doing wildlife photography in the National Parks, which he uses as a reference for his unique paintings.

Bernie spoke about The Golden Ratio.

The Golden Ratio

The “golden ratio” is a unique mathematical relationship, and easy to spot in the natural world.

The “golden ratio” is a unique mathematical relationship. Two numbers are in the golden ratio if the ratio of the sum of the numbers (a b) divided by the larger number (a) is equal to the ratio of the larger number divided by the smaller number (a/b). The golden ratio is about 1.618, and represented by the Greek letter phi.
