It’s handing in day for works to the RNLI Exhibition at the Yacht Club in Instow, nr Bideford, Devon. I have put in 4 pieces - hoping that they will all be hung. The exhibition is an annual event to raise funds for the Royal National Lifeboats Institution, with artists in the locality submitting works for sale. It’s only a short exhibition over the period from 24th - 27th October. The Private view is tonight, 23rd and we are hoping for a good attendance.
As a matter of interest, I have uploaded images of the pieces on display at the RNLI Exhibition. The three Summer Study series works are in watercolour, a medium I rarely work with, but they were created during an experimental workshop - working wet into very wet as you can see. They are very small pieces and priced accordingly. The fourth image is quite different and is in oils. This landscape was inspired following a late summer’s walk in our locality. The Tarka Trail, is a walking/cycle way that follows what was once an old railway line near to my home and this was a view taken along that route on our way to Instow. Unfortunately that view may not exist any longer due to ongoing construction work.
