UK Coloured Pencil Society

Talking Point 71 Competition

UART 'Flowers'

As spring is on the way, our competition sponsor UART has chosen the subject Flowers for our next competition. You can use any paper you want for your entry, and you could have the great pleasure of winning some UART sanded paper. This is available in beige or dark.


The rules are, as usual, that the picture must be at least 50% dry coloured pencil and any reference photographs must be either your own or used with the permission of the photographer. If you can, go into your garden and draw the flowers there, set up an arrangement in a vase or draw individual flower portraits.


Your flower picture can be anything from abstract to hyperrealistic; it can be from your imagination or it can be botanically accurate. The main thing is to have fun and possibly discover a bit more about plants.


You can use the form below or email, with attachments, to Please give the title of the picture(s).


Closing Date for entries - 29th April 2019 by 10pm GMT. Please note this is later than stated in Talking Point due to late delivery of the magazine.
