Nunhead Cemetry by Bill Aldridge

The selectors are two critics, two artists and two collectors. My ‘Nunhead Cemetery’ (below) was selected by Sacha Craddock, art critic for the Guardian. My other piece ‘Autumn leads to Spring’ (mounted on aluminium) was selected by Celia Imrie. The photo shows her choosing my painting!

This is the 25th year of Discerning Eye. There is always a very good selection of work, and everything is for sale. More info on www.discerningeye.org

Wendy Winfield in Pen and Ink

Nicky Sherrott writes:

Just thought to mention that some lovely examples of Wendy’s work appear in the recently published “Pen and Ink, contemporary artists, timeless techniques”, by James Hobbs: a compilation, in A5 format, of works by 35 artists, showing different styles, plus some text about each work. Well laid out – a pleasure and a help. Bravo, Wendy! One of her works was, I think, done on a Drawing London day out in Greenwich.
