Botanical art exhibition

This comes from UKCPS member, Val Hopkins:

The Gloucestershire Society for Botanical Illustration will be staging its Annual Exhibition at the Nature in Art Museum at Twigworth, near Gloucester, from March 26th - April 7th, 2013.

Quite a few of the regular contributors (myself included) use coloured pencils. We have no selection (other than availability of space and copyright checks) as we like to encourage beginners. The contents, therefore, range from the professional to the less accomplished. Nevertheless, people tell us the standard is still very high indeed.


Passion for Pencils Workshop
Following on from the very popular Coloured Pencil workshops, Bev Lewis and Pauline Longley are including other types of pencils in this next workshop.

So if you would like to improve your techniques using graphite, pastel pencils, aquarelle pencils, or charcoal pencils, as well as coloured pencils, they would be delighted to give you a
helping hand. There will be tips, demonstrations and plenty of encouragement.

The Village Hall,
Vole Road,
Saturday 23 March 2013
