Derwent Competition- 2nd Place


I entered another Derwent Competition last month to recreate Ashness Bridge in Derwent, for the new Artists Pencils tin.
As I have just had another one of my drawings (St Pauls) put on the packaging for Pastel Blocks, I wasn't particularly confident getting anywhere.
However, I am pleased to announce that I got second place and as my prize, a box of 72 Artists pencils. I can't wait to use them!
The winner, Malcolm Cudmore's image was truly beautiful, and was my outright favourite of the entries. Well Done Malcolm!
When I draw a traditional scene, I do like to add a modern twist to it.
Hope you all like it! The original is now for sale for £200, and it is framed.
