Landscape of Achintrad boathouse, created in pastel, wins Honorable Mention award in art competitions

I like to enter a few art competitions a year as it allows me to share my artwork with an audience that may not have been exposed to my detailed and realistic style before. 

As mentioned in previous blogs I have won a number of awards and I am proud to share with you one I was awarded this month - an Honorable Mention in the Art Room Online Gallery's "Landscape Art Competition February 2021"

This pastel painting is of the Achintrad Boathouse in Scotland and was sold a number of years ago through to a buyer in the USA.

As with most of my artworks it was created using soft pastel ( for the background ) and sharpened pastel pencils for the details. The paper I use is Artspectrum Colourfix pastel paper which has a slight sandpaper finish and holds on to the pastel to reduce "shedding". You can read more about the materials I use here.....
