09/10: A FEW MORE UKCPS EXHIBITION PICTURES

I'll be starting work this morning on one of the Border Collie commissions but until I have permission to show progress pictures they'll be 'kept secret'



In the meantime here's a few more photos taken at the UK Coloured Pencil Society's 11th Annual Int'l Exhibition which is at Nuneaton Museum and Gallery till 25 November.

As mentioned in yesterday's post, there's a lot of glare/reflection off the glass so the photos just don't do justice to the very high standard of the pieces ... you'll need to visit the exhibition and view them 'in the flesh'

Part way through photographing the exhibits (prior to the AGM) I was asked very nicely not to take photos by one of the Gallery staff, so there are lots more pictures I didn't photograph but I know Malcolm Cudmore was planning to photograph exhibits when he is demonstrating at the Gallery.   Also, I guess pictures will be available to view via the website/catalogue at some stage soon.

Thanks for giving us this peek of the show, Sue. I find it very interesting to see all the different subjects and compositions.

Love the pictures, sorry you weren't allowed to continue. I am very impressed with the pepper it looks so real as though one could pick it up and use it. What a colour. Wish I could go see the exhibition myself.

That is some amazing artwork! I love the one of the little boy crouching down, could you tell me the artist's name?

Yes, shame about the quality of the photos/reflections in the glass but I thought it would be interesting for those artists who couldn't make the show to have a peek at some of the exhibits.

Katherine, I haven't got a catalogue so can't tell you the name of the artist yet. Such a shame the gallery wouldn't let the Society put the usual labels up showing brief details of artist, subject, pencils/support used etc.
I'll find out and email you asap.
