Also a few more photos below of a very enjoyable evening!
My painting below Chancelot Mill, the submission that earned me a spot on the Landscape Artist of the Year last year, is in the show. You can view it, or buy it, on the RSA website on this link – RSA Annual Exhibition
My favourite pieces of the evening were a beautiful landscape by Kate Downie, and a self portrait by Duncan Robertson – viewable on these links –
Kate Downie. Field Notes
Duncan Robertson. Working from home, all day long on my chaise longue
Duncan’s piece amused me as I used to share a flat with him and afew other friends (the flat featured in the photograph below) and it’s very characteristic! It was also really lovely to see Richard Demarco, now in his 90’s and looking as energetic as ever.
Obviously my favourite dapper gentleman of the evening was my partner Adam Brewster, looking as though he’d stepped out of a James Bond film in his black tie!
For contrast to the poshness of the event we dropped into a Pizza hut afterwards with our good friend Giles Sutherland. It was an unusually misty evening in Edinburgh, the Haar from the sea making the night lights of Edinburgh look very mysterious!
