Our Gold member Sheona Hamilton-Grant's
beautiful drawing "Quality Time"
won The American Artists Awards in both Charcoal/Ink/Pencil and Human Realism. Sheona is rightly "Chuffed to bits" - especially as she doesn't normally enter competitions!

Our Silver member Sue Clinker
tells us Gizmo was a commissioned study of "a rescue cat who really has fallen on her feet and is very spoilt". Not only lucky for Gizmo but lucky for us too, as we get to admire Sue's superb artistry.
Sue has captured every aspect of the cat in this pastel painting, from the texture of the fur to the dreamy, far-away look. And that simple, understated reflection grounds Gizmo perfectly. I don't think you can look at this without expecting her to get up and walk of the paper at any moment.
Visit Sue's gallery
to view her other masterful images.
A very worthy Editor's Choice for this month.
Bev Lewis wins "Founders Award"
With a whoop of delight, Bev told us 'Bad Hair Day
' won the 'Founders Award for Best UK Entry' in the Coloured Pencil Society's 2008 annual exhibition. Bev says...
To say I'm chuffed would be an understatement. I so nearly didn't submit it as I had thought that pet portraits had been overlooked in the past, but I am so happy I did.
So are we.... take a look at this month's Editors Choice

"RIVER SLANEY from Source to Sea" by John Duffy
Our Gold member John Duffy
has recently written and published a book illustrating the bridges across the River Slaney in Ireland. John follows the river from its source at Lugnaquillia, in County Wicklow, to the estuary in County Wexford, illustrating each bridge in detailed graphite pencil drawings.
While the book concentrates on the many bridges, it is full of interesting anecdotes and stories; and it helpfully gives the true meanings behind the Anglicised original place names. The final chapters give general information on such diverse subjects as Rod Fishing and The River Gods of Edward Smyth. It's a most interesting read and generously illustrated by John's accurate pencil drawings.
