Learn ANIMAL PORTRAITURE with GAYLE MASON
'Spring Hare' study by Gayle Mason
Our Gold member Gail Mason is very busy working and teaching. She told us:

"I'm now the tutor for the Pet Portrait Course run by the London Art College and a regular contributor to Leisure Painter Magazine. My hare demonstration in coloured pencil is in the November issue currently on sale so I'm busy at the moment.

I also won the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery prize for best in show at the recent exhibition of the Society of Feline Artists at the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery in London."
ALEX RILEY's London Art College Competition SUCCESS!

Our Gold member Alexandra Riley's drawing "Boris my Bengal" is the Runner Up in the College's prestigious annual competition. Well done, Alex i richly deserved!

This beautiful drawing is the result of 12 weeks of effort - visit below to really appreciate it and to read Alex's write up. And visit Alex's gallery here at SA to view the rest of her work.
 
"Dancing For Joy"
This latest drawing by our new Gold member, Canadian Laurene Spino, is superb example of graphite pencil art. She has a wonderful eye for detail that is used in a way that doesn't attract attention to itself, but it all combines to add a great degree of natural life to her subjects. Her art is so consistently masterful that I could have chosen any one of her drawings to be promoted to the Starving Artists Hall of Fame.

The balance, dynamism and energy, and her superb bokeh background all meld together into one believable and joyful whole.

Add Laurene's skilful execution and you have a drawing more than worthy of being my Editor's Choice.

Visit Laurene's gallery to see a close-up view of this drawing, and more of her superb work. The originals are not currently for sale but she offers top-quality limited edition prints of her work.
