Faber Castell Polychromos Caran d'Ache Luminance on Drafting Film

UK Coloured Pencil Society Open International Exhibition 2017

Posted by judith selcuk on June 2, 2017 at 2:20 PM Comments comments (5)

It was with great pride that I was selected to exhibit in this years Open International Exhibition with the UK Coloured Pencil Society at the Menier Gallery in London. I entered three piecesw this year was astounded when all three pieces were selected.

The first was Reynard, I had entered him the previous year but on that occassion he was not accepted. It goes to show how different judges have different tastes.


The second was 'Mum in a Million' which was drawn using Brush and Pencil blending powders and textured fixative on sanded paper. This beautiful rose was a present from my two littlest children on Mother's Day and has the most amazing scent.



My third piece was entitled  'Red Hot Chilli Peppers' created on drafting film using both sides. Drafting film is a plastic surface which is ideal for coloured pencil as it creates a luminous appearance and is great to add dimension and depth. whilst it does not take many layers the colours are purer and transluscent.

‘BRUSH AND PENCIL’ PRODUCTS FOR GORGEOUS COLOURED PENCIL PAINTING


'New at Jackson’s, the ‘Brush and Pencil’ products for coloured pencil painting are an exciting addition to our range of materials. The powder blender is a unique product that is designed to work in a very specific application, as a lubricant underneath the drawing, so you will need to read about it before you start. If used according to the special method it will yield surprising results; it can make coloured pencil look as blended and saturated as an oil painting.'

'Artist Judith Selcuk tries out the ‘Brush and Pencil’ products and shows us how they work best'
