Judith Heilbronn-Crown wins 'Best in Show'

This post is all about the pictures and UKCPS members who won prizes at the 8th "World of Coloured Pencil" Exhibition at the Pencil Museum in Keswick, Cumbria

The Derwent Award for ‘Best in Show’
Waterfall at Nant Gwernol by Judith-Heilbronn-Crown
Pencils: Derwent Coloursoft and Watercolour, 
Paper: Black Stonehenge, 35 x 44cm
Abergynolwyn has the most lovely waterfalls, reached by the train from Tywyn in Wales. The small steam train calls at several beautiful stops en route, Abergynolwyn being the last in the line. There was almost 2 hours to walk and take photos before the return journey. This picture is from my favourite photo. I wanted to try out my Coloursoft pencils and also to experiment on black Stonehenge paper. The waterfall seemed to be a picture that might work well on black Stonehenge—and I was happy with my choice of subject. I used Derwent Watercolour white for the highlights.
The Best in Show prize donated by Derwent comprises:  Wooden presentation box of 72 Derwent Inktense pencils, Wooden presentation box of 48 of the new Derwent Pastel pencils, Box of 6 Coloursoft Portrait pencils, Box of 6 Derwent Sketching pencils, A4 hardback sketchbook, Museum Notebook and pen, Derwent Helical Battery Pencil Sharpener, and a booklet on the History of Pencil Making in Keswick.

The online exhibition can now be seen on the main UKCPS website.

Unlike the Annual Open International Exhibition, the "World of Coloured Pencils" is a members only exhibition where the work exhibited is selected by ballot making this exhibition much more representational of the range of abilities within the Society, from beginners to professionals.  Artists can also use other media for their enytries so long as coloured pencils are the main medium.

Thanks to our Exhibition Sponsors
