Unexpected success!

I was surprised and delighted to discover that my portrait entitled ‘May we please go home?’ had been awarded the Barbara Campton Cup for best Portrait in any medium at the Tiverton Art Society’s Spring exhibition (which closed this weekend, 9th April).

Naturally it’s always a wonderful boost to the confidence to win an award but this one was particularly significant for me because on this occasion I had pushed myself outside my comfort zone and worked in acrylic rather than my preferred medium of pastels.  I was pretty certain the composition was strong but I had experienced grave misgivings about my technique.  How reassuring to discover that these misgivings were, it seems, unfounded!Portrait award spring 2016
