I have just found out that my 'Autumn Sumach' picture has been short listed for the Ken Bromley, catalogue cover competition. The finalist will be the one who has the most votes, so if you can spare a moment it would be really great if you would vote for it. I would love to have my picture on the catalogue cover. :-) If you follow the link and look for my picture you can cast your vote.

The picture measures about A3. I used Faber Castell polychromos on Bristol Velum finish paper.
