|Sunday Times Watercolour Competition - FIRST PRIZE (£10,000)|
Not long afterwards the country was overrun by war (Port Edgar, Scotland) by David Forster
acrylic on paper, 91 x 74 cm
His intensely wrought landscape paintings refer to the traditions of the 18th and 19th centuries. Though the scenes depicted are topographically correct, light and colour are altered to create a fictionalised reality.

Sunday Times Watercolour Competition - The Exhibition
I'll be writing a review of the exhibition when it opens at the Mall Galleries in the Mall, London on 16th September until 21 September 2013. The exhibition is open from 10am to 5pm each day and entry is free.
83 works by 79 artists have been selected by the jurors for the exhibition from a submission of 800+ entries. This is significantly less than the 100 estimate at the time of the Call for Entries.
I understand a series of FREE workshops and demonstrations by past and current exhibitors will occur during the exhibition but I've got no details of those as yet. I'll post them when I have them.
Smith & Williamson are generously supporting a tour of the exhibition in the UK. A selection of the 2013 exhibition will be shown in their offices throughout the UK from September 2013 to January 2014.
