The 2016 accepted works to the Cambridge Studio Gallery 'Portrait Prize ' have been announced and I'm absolutely thrilled to announce that 'Beautiful', a portrait of my well, beautiful, 15 year old neighbor Emma has been accepted!! Some of the very best portrait artists in Australia have entered to vie for a coveted prize......a month long solo show at the gallery. Honoured to be a part of it all!!
Running from Wednesday 10 – Saturday 28 February 2016, it has a reputation of 'feeding' the Archibald, with two entries last year having been accepted into the top Award in the country. Truly honoured to have been accepted in 2016- and a fabulous opportunity for coloured pencils to get another looksie with the Fine Art world.
Beautiful, Portrait of Emma, Fabriano Artistico paper, Prismacolor, Polchromos and Caran D\'Ache Luminance pencils, 42 hours, own reference. 30 x 40cm.
