A pastel drawing of Kirkcudbright Harbour. I did this as a short demonstration in the pastel medium for the group who came on one of our Painting Holi

For the next two weeks I am taking part in an exhibition in Newmarket. It is by the Friends in East Anglia of the R.W.S.
Exhibits are not only in pure watercolour, but also include any water based medium such as gouache , acrylics, or pen ink and wash. The subjects are very diverse - from East Anglian seascapes and landscapes to further afield. Abstracts, animal portraits, flower paintings, and architectural interiors are also included. Below are a few examples of the paintings on show.

“Pretty Prawn” by Tessa Shedley Jordan

“Swimmer” by Gillian Marklew

The “Prospect of Whitby” by Les Williams

“Old Hulks, Pin Mill” by John Glover
The exhibition is in the Palace House Mews Gallery and runs until the 18th October 2009.
