This workshop based on depicting a purple Phalaenopsis orchid was led by two members Jane Wilkes and Jo Lloyd.
The pencils used were mainly Faber Castell Polychromo, with some Prisma and Caran d’Ache. The prisma pencils are more difficult to obtain, they are available from the website of Ann Swann or from America.
Jane did four demonstrations, firstly depicting a petal then a leaf followed by a root and part of a stem.Both Jane and Jo came around offering advice and help.
The EGM was held at lunchtime. At this meeting Liz Green agreed to be the next Chairman and Sheila Smith offered her services as Secretary for the Society. Many thanks go to the outgoing Chairman – Julia Blower and to the Secretary – Sue Wilson, both are remaining on the committee for the next year.
