Review: "Love Pastels" - The Pastel Society Annual Exhibition 2012

Katherine, who writes the fabulous ‘Making a Mark’ blog where she keeps up with all that’s happening in the world of art, has written a lovely review of the annual exhibition of the Pastel Society which opened yesterday. ‘Love Pastels 2012’ will be on untill 25 February and my painting ‘Flowerbed’ is featured amongst a huge variety of styles and subject matter - but all in pastel. A brilliant medium, my first love amongst art materials, which deserves every bit of extra attention it can get.

Review: "Love Pastels" - The Pastel Society Annual Exhibition 2012

Here are some pictures of the show, taken from the review on the Making a Mark Blog.

Works by Felicity House, who won The Artist Magazine Award.

Works by Matthew Draper, who won the PanPastel Award, for another painting.

Patricia Cain’s award winning work, I love here work and I am sure this triptych is hugely impressive in real life!

My painting ‘Flowerbed’

Thank you, Katherine!!


  1. Sophie, I attended the Love Pastel exhibition yesterday with my girlfirend & we both agreed that your painting was the best in the show. The way you have captured the textures of the cloth is amazing!

    I'm an amateur artist who uses pastels a lot & your painting was both inspirational & daunting at the same tme-I have a long way to go it seems.

    I will look out for your works from now on.

    Thank you, Tony x
