I was voted to be a member of Cambridge Drawing Society around 8 years ago. The society is believed to be one of the oldest of its kind, being founded in 1882 and is going from strength to strength. They have two shows a year, one during the Spring half term at the beautiful Pitt Building and one at the Leys School in the Autumn half term.
In October 2023, artists could enter up to three works plus cards and unframed prints or artworks.
Of the three I entered 2 were sold on the first day and I am really delighted. Will my painting, 'Birch Wood' first image above, based on the silver birches at Anglesey Abbey, be sold too?
Many people know I take part in drawing challenges during the year, a 'January Challenge' and some years I do the 'Inktober' Challenge.
I do find the Inktober Challenge, which happens every October, difficult! The prompts are more aimed at a sci fi audience than someone like me who wants to draw what I see around me. it means I have to stretch my imagination, see drawings illustrated.
But I do like to challenge my drawing skills and I do add colour. Follow the Hashtags #Inktober and #Intober2023 to see the huge variety of responses or follow me on:
Painter living in Cambridge. Mixes fantasy and realism and loves medieval art and it's detail. An avid sketcher.
