I entered the SAA Artist of the Year competition for the first time and was so surprised to receive a letter telling me that my entry 'Itchy Feet' in coloured pencils was awarded 'Commended Finalist'. There were 6,000 entries and I am in the top 62. The exhibition will be at 'It's All About Art' at The Business Design Centre, Islington from 21st to 23rd July 2011.
I have been neglecting my blog recently but I haven't been totally idle as I have been taking some coloured pencil workshops which have required quite a lot of preparation. Hope to get back to drawing for pleasure again next week.
