Two of my works have been accepted for hanging in the 25th Annual Exhibition of the Society of Botanical Artists.

Last year I also had two works hung. Both my work had a similar colour scheme and they looked good together so I decided to try for a similar effect this year and drew white flowers - a peony (see Not Quite White above) and Two Iris and Three Buds. I don't think I used a single white coloured pencil for either of them!

The exhibition will be held at Central Hall, Westminster, across the road from Westminster Abbey, between 16th and 25th April with the Private View on the 15th April.

If anybody else has got work into the exhibition and will not be able to attend, do please let me know and I'll try and find it and take a photo of it when I'm doing the photos for my review of the exhibition on this blog.

My apologies for the dreadful quality of these photographs of the framed works - just before they were packed up for the trip into town and the submission. I have only one position in my home where I can photograph work in natural daylight without a reflection and the light is not great and I don't use flash! Believe it or not the mat is the same colour for both!
