The 142nd Open Annual Exhibition of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour has opened at the Royal Scottish Academy building on the Mound in Edinburgh.
The purpose of the annual exhibition is to
- showcase the best painting in Scotland in watercolour and water-based media.
- exhibit over 300 paintings by RSW members and other artists who responded to the call for open submissions from Scotland, the UK and around the world.
For those of you like me who can’t visit in person, you can see the artwork selected for this exhibition in the virtual exhibition which can be accessed via the website.
I’m going to highlight below the artwork which “jumped off the screen” at me.
What I found very confusing was that the online exhibition works in a very peculiar way. So, for example, I know I saw Anita Barley’s work – because I wrote it down – but now cannot find it again! It’s very confusing…..
In addition, it’s just one artwork per artist online – so we don’t see all 300+ paintings which are in the exhibition. Which is a pity….
