A very busy day but I’m so glad I managed to squeeze in a quick visit to the Pastel Society Annul Exhibition. A member of the group I belong to (the East Finchley Open Artists) has 2 beautiful pastel pictures in the exhibition which closes at the end of this weekend.
I photographed her pictures but they have not come out that well. One Of the hallmarks of Christine Watson’s work is the deep deep colours she achieves – not an easy thing to do with pastels.
These photos don’t do justice to the actual pictures!!!
A few more of my favourites
The top one of these three breathtaking pictures by Matthew Draper deservedly won one of the awards.
Then I am always attracted to more formal graphic pictures and loved all of these!!
Before leaving the gallery I took a quick peek at the Wapping Group of Artists Exhibition in the smaller gallery. Loads of wonderful paintings of boats and barges as one would expect. This exhibition is on for another week
