Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours 2019

I am thrilled to announce that two of my paintings on paper have been selected to be exhibited as part of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours 2019 exhibition.

The Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours 207th Exhibition will be on display in central London, at Mall Galleries between 3 and 18 April 2019. Watercolour is an ancient medium which has been used from the Palaeolithic era to create many of Europe’s cave paintings, and in the Middle Ages for the illustration of manuscripts. The popularity of watercolour painting today can be attributed to a transformation in its use, beginning with the Renaissance, and in which the United Kingdom has played a central role.

The RI’s 207th Exhibition at Mall Galleries is a survey of how contemporary artists are using this age-old medium. The exhibition showcases a diversity of styles and techniques, from traditional uses of watercolours to more experimental and innovative paintings. Works on display include many young painters using water-soluble media in new and exciting ways.

I would love for you to come and visit this exciting exhibition and to explore the many different ways in which artists explore the wonderful medium of watercolour.
