World of Coloured Pencils 2009 - Other Award Winners

Following on from Monday's post - Keswick - exhibition opens and awards announced - which featured the Best in Show Award, this post has images by the other artists winning awards at the 2009 Annual 'World of Coloured Pencils' Exhibition at The Cumberland Pencil Museum in Keswick.

The artwork is judged by Derwent staff as Derwent is our host for this exhibition, led on this occasion by Kath Thompson, the Assistant Manager of the Museum.

The UKCPS Award for ‘Reserve Best in Show’

‘Neigh-bours’ £180.00
Pauline Longley
Pencils: Faber Castell / Paper: Fisher 400 sanded paper
This picture of the horses was inspired by a photo taken last summer. I imagined their breath on a cold winter’s morning to give some atmosphere.

UKCPS Award for Runner Up

Angels Trumpets £650.00
Janie Pirie SBA UKCPS
Pencils: Derwent Artists / Paper: Fabriano Artistico HP
A festoon of huge Datura blossoms, commonly know as Angels Trumpets. I saw these growing in a large container in a town in the Loire valley whilst on a wine tasting expedition. I was blown away by their size and beauty so just had to draw them. Fortunately I had my pencils with me and hadn’t been wine tasting that day!

The Leisure Painter Magazine Award for the Best Newcomer's Entry
(2 years subscription to the magazine)

The Floral Shawl £300.00
Ursula Williams
Pencils: Derwent Artists / Paper: Cotman Watercolour paper 300gsm
A nude lady subtly covered with a floral shawl. I chose this composition because of the beauty found in each of the three subjects: the human body, the flowers, and the source of light. I painted them with coloured pencils but the fabric of the shawl is painted with black and white gouache and retouched with coloured pencils in certain areas.

Highly Commended
UKCPS certificate and 10 sheets drawing paper

Murano Island, Venice (NFS)
Linda Brand
Pencils: Caran D’Ache Supracolor (w/c) / Paper: Daler Rowney cartridge

I chose this subject as it holds a special place in my heart - I got engaged there.

Ducks £300.00
Judith Heilbronn-Crown
Pencils: Derwent Watercolour / Paper: Arches Aquarelle
A few years ago when I was walking by a canal, we came across a row of 11 ducks. They looked so attractive I took a photo of them … this is adapted from part of the photo.

Tomorrow we see photographs of the exhibition and the hardworking volunteers who helped to organise and hang the show and offer some thanks to all those people who have contributed to the creation of this exhibition.

The exhibition can be seen at The Cumberland Pencil Museum in Keswick until 27th June 2009.

You can also see an online exhibition of all the accepted entries to this exhibition on the UKCPS website.
