I am delighted to have my painting "Farm Approach"  accepted into the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours 211th Exhibition. This is my 11th consecutive year exhibiting with the RI!

Due to a family bereavement last year I was only able to paint sporadically and therefore had minimal pictures available. So I am especially pleased to be accepted this year. The picture is also a nod to my very first accepted painting with the RI way back in 2013. Here we are now 11 exhibitions later! How time flies!

The exhibition takes place at the usual venue of:

Mall Galleries,
The Mall, (Nr. Admiralty Arch) 
London SW1Y 5BD

and runs from 30th March to 8th April 2023.

It will also be shown online at:
