Dave Richards - Hafren Award

Ukcps Silver status member, Dave Richards, was awarded First Place- Hafren Award in the Hafren Themed Art Competition/Exhibition which opened in Newtown, Powys, on  26 November last.  The theme was 'Revelation'.

Dave's picture (shown on the right) is entitled "Feelings Revealed" and was done exclusively with Derwent Artists coloured pencils on Rising Stonehenge paper.

Dave has commented "I have a set of 72 of the Artists pencils which were the first set of pencils I bought. I was inspired to pick them up again after seeing Suzy’s [Herbert] beautiful ‘work in progress’ picture of pears she was demonstrating at the Open Exhibition in September. I seem to have come full circle after trying many different makes in search of the ‘magic’ pencil".

"A total of 74 pictures were accepted for the exhibition. There was a wide range of media including 2 in wool, however there were only 2 coloured pencil pictures [my entries], It was very pleasing to see cp being accepted as an equal".

The exhibition is in Newtown, Powys, Mid Wales and runs until 27 January 2012. More details are available on the Hafren website at:
