UK Coloured Pencil Society

Talking Point 81 Competition

Cult Pens

Maritime: on, under or beside the sea


Jackson's Art Supplies are kindly sponsoring this issue's competition with a prize of Caran D'Ache Museum Aquarelle Pencils - Marine Colours.


Although the Museum pencils would be perfect to create your entries, being both water soluble and beautiful when used dry, you may use any coloured pencils.

The subject is, of course, as wide as an ocean. From pebbles and little rock pools with seaweed and starfish, through underwater scenes, to stormy waves, ships and idyllic seascapes. You can use your imagination if you like as they don’t necessarily have to be realistic.


There are three equal prizes, each winner receiving the following:
A set of 20 Caran D'Ache Museum Aquarelle Marine Pencils (RRP £70).


Good luck and have fun!
