Portrait of Graham

Portraiture isn't my strongest subject in art but I'm practising and I chose to do a portrait of a dear friend of mine, 93 year old Graham. It came out not too bad considering I've not really ever worked in pastels and pastel pencils before.

Medium: Pastels and Pastel pencils on black paper
Size: 21cm x 30cm

The Little Painting Challenge-Win

I've got great news my postcard was chosen as one the 1000 winning entries to be exhibited at the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester!! I am thrilled !! Still can't believe it.The exhibition is open for public viewing from 1st -22nd May 2015. I entered 4 postcards in 'The Little Painting Challenge' set up by the BBC. You can see all 4 images in my last post here and this one below called 'Bee-ing Isolated' is the winning entry. I feel like I've finally achieved a little something in the art world.
