Private View - Annual Exhibition of the Society of Botanical Artists

This is where I am today - at the Private View of the Annual Exhibition of the Society of Botanical Artists (SBA).

The exhibition is in the Aldersgate Suite at Central Hall Westminster - opposite the West Door to Westminster Abbey. You'll see a great big SBA banner hanging outside the entrance door!

It opens to the public tomorrow and is open every day until the 23rd April between 11am and 5pm. Entry is free.

Below are a couple of my works which are in the show.  There will also be some 600+ other works for botanical art fans - in various media but predominantly watercolour and coloured pencils - plus a display of the work by the students on the SBA's Distance Learning Diploma Course.

It's a very sociable and friendly exhibition - with lots of demonstrations and opportunities to take a tour of the exhibition.

The interesting spotty pattern on the lotus bloom is due to the fact that I completely forgot that I need to dress in something dark without a pattern when taking photos of glazed works!
