This afternoon I visited The 198th Annual Exhibition of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours, which opened last week and continues at the Mall Galleries until 1st May.

It's a splendid exhibition - which will get a review tomorrow on Making A Mark

In the meantime, here's my sketch done during my 'cup of tea' break `at the exhibition. I'm sat just beneath the books area looking down the length of the West Gallery.

Some marvellous and colourful paintings by Bob Rudd of Iona and various other islands in the Hebrides feature on the end wall.


  1. Very nice indeed, Katherine. I think there is a little book in 'Taking Tea in Galleries' :)

  2. I have it planned - working title "eating and drinking and sketching"!

  3. Oh I wish this was not closing so soon...I will be in London June 3 for an exhibit at CAC
    Let me know if you'd like to come to the opening June 8th Katherine..
    Must get to the Mall this visit!

  4. Like this sketch very much. And encourages me to sketch no matter where I am. Thankyou

  5. I like this wee sketch very much and it encourages me to remeber that anywhere is an opportunity to sketch! Thankyou

  6. I love the sketch here and the two below...especially that gorgeous view of the city. You seem to know how to do plein air sketches...sketch followed by lunch with the group and a bit of sharing and comparing!
