Paint in Any Media with John Glover

It has been an incredibly busy start to 2012 with numerous portrait commissions, demonstrations to art societies and lots of new classes. Hence my blog has been somewhat neglected.

A new venture for me are two classes I am teaching at West Norfolk Arts Centre near King's Lynn.
Called "Paint in Any Media" they cover all media, from watercolours to oils, pastels, gouache. They are two very lively groups of students working in a diversity of subject matter and styles.

The classes are on Tuesdays from 10.30 - 12.30 and 1.30 - 3.30

The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours

I was delighted to learn yesterday that I have had a portrait accepted by the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours. Competition was fierce with nearly 900 entries.

"The Institute has come to be recognized as one of the leading national institutions for watercolour painters, spanning figurative, abstract and experimental work."

Founded 181 years ago, it is their 200th London exhibition. It will be held at the Mall Galleries, near Trafalgar Square, between 14th -25th March.
