LOOK! - over there.

This is the last of my entries for the UKCPS exhibition. Slightly more detailed than the previous two done in this style. I need to keep a grip on my obsession with detail otherwise it gets out of hand.

Size: About A4
Support: Fabrianno Artistico HP (as usual)
Media: Watercolour and salt, Faber Castel Polychromo pencils.


  1. So sweet, you are being very prolific Bev, want to send some of that inspiration to me?

  2. LOL, I was desperate to get more than two entries in for London, hence the flurry of work. Normally things take for ever to complete, as you know Pauline.

  3. I am new to your blog but I enjoy it.

  4. Thank you Andrew, please visit again.

  5. Hi Bev,
    Love how you've mixed the paint with the pencils. When is the exhibition date? Oh, I just ordered some Fabriano - feeling the need to DRAW, lol!


  6. Hi Gail,
    The exhibition is in the Methodist Central Hall, Westminster, London and runs from 18th Sept to 1st Oct. Hope you can get a chance to visit it.
    Come on, get those pencils/paint out and get cracking!

  7. Lol, I'd like nothing more than to visit the exhibition Bev, but my bullie girl can't be left anymore even with sitters. She's 14 this month and pines so much we're afraid of her having a fit - literally! Will there be an online version at all?


  8. Aaah poor ole Sugs, 14 is a good age and you have had so much fun with her. I am dreading the time Tilly gets old. She is 11 now and is just beginning to slow down (only a little, mind), and I hope she will go on for lots more years yet.

    The exhibition will definitely be on the UKCPS website. Don't forget to have a look around the beginning of October.


Pencil on toned paper

Here are a couple of experiments using graphite pencil and white coloured pencil, plus a touch of white gel pen on grey paper. I am reasona...
