COLOURED PENCIL TOPICS
Peter Weatherill - Personal artwork pages - 1
A collection of artwork completed over the last 20 years or so. I retired from the world of Banking 27 years ago and took up art as a fairly serious hobby. This collection is part of the result - from pictures scanned as an ongoing record. The pictures are not in any particular order, but where I have a date for completion and I have a source, or a name for the reference, I will give it. The main sequence for media was as follows : I started out with soft pastel, moved on to acrylics, ventured into graphite, back to acrylics, watercolours then to coloured pencil. Watercolour pencil followed and pastel pencils. I have dabbled briefly with oils, and for the last few years have been trying out pen and wash, and pen and pencil work. During all this I spent a 3 year term as Chairman of the UK Coloured Pencil Society and undertook demonstrations and workshops to art societies, as well as carrying out demonstrations for coloured pencil manufacturers at shows. For the last 10 years or so I have taught art courses at Knuston Hall in Northamptonshire for Adult Education. I am now finally retiring ( again ) at age 80
