Bev Lewis in Somerset

If anyone is in Somerset in the next week or two the might like to go and see Bev Lewis's lovely exhibition of animals at Hestercombe Gardens near Taunton. She is demonstrating CP on Saturday and Sunday lunch times. I'm sure she will be delighted to see you. The cafe is good too, and dogs are welcome if you want a walk in the lovely gardens.

Me - for a change

Just to add to the acceptance of CP works in galleries -

I've just received news in the midday post that my picture 'Oranges' has been accepted for display at the Wirral Summer Art Exhibition 2012, to be held at the Williamson Museum & Art Gallery, Birkenhead, from 30th June to 9th September.

It was completed using Derwent Coloursoft on Daler-Rowney Extra Smooth Cartridge paper.

'Me Strong'
Congratulations also go to Alan Jones whose picture  of a baby gorilla has also been accepted at Patchings!  Alan is having a good year!

"Just thought I'd let you know my drawing of the baby gorilla
("Me Strong") has been accepted into the Patchings Art Festival! It was drawn with Derwent Studio & Coloursoft Pencils onto A3 cartridge. I am over the moon it has been accepted and was so excited I delivered it by hand!"

Isn't it good to see CP work getting into the popular exhibitions!

Sandra Dewsberry @ Patchings

'Stanage Edge - Derbyshire'
Congratulations to UKCPS member, Sandra Dewsberry, whose CP work entitled 'Stanage Edge' [See right] has been accepted for display at the 'Artist' and 'Leisure Painter' Patchings 2012 Exhibition.
Sandra, who is a member of Robin Borrett's East Leake local group, has commented:

"I'm very much an amateur, consider myself a beginner, and haven't done many pictures at all yet. I usually feel I haven't got a clue what I'm doing and the end result seems to come from nowhere, but I'm learning with each one and my desire to produce bright, colourful and detailed work is what motivates me to 'have a go'.

What I have done has been so well received it's made me sit up and think maybe I'm capable of more than I realise, and I'm chuffed to bits with people's responses to my work. I entered the competition just to see what (if anything) would happen really. It's the first one I've entered and I did it because I enjoy going to the Patchings Art Festival and had this mad dream that it would be amazing to actually - one day - have a picture on display there.  The picture is worked in Prismacolor pencils on Bristol Board."
