Janie Pirie - Strawberries
It is always great to hear of our members having some success with coloured pencils, so we are delighted to report that Janie Pirie won a Silver Gilt Medal for her 8 coloured pencil works showing soft fruits at the RHS Show that was part of the Gardener's World Live Show at the NEC in Birmingham in June. She was the only artist there showing coloured pencil works, and caused quite a stir. Well done Janie!
Praise also due to Gayle Mason, who had a work accepted into the National Exhibition of Wildlife Art on the Wirral for the second year running. Katherine Tyrrell has an extensive blog about this here and Gayle has her own blog, "Fur in the Paint", here.Please let me know if you have had any success yourself with coloured pencil works - the more the merrier!
