Waterlines

Colin Allbrook RI, RSMA, SEA

 

Friday 10 - Wednesday 15 May 2019

10 am - 5 pm

Admission free

A celebration of the colours and especially the light we find here on and around the coastline, towns and estuaries of the south west. The paintings will be in watercolour and bodycolour, a luminous medium ideal for describing the hazy light and tones seen along the coast. The exhibition will be an attempt to capture a sense of the time and moment of the life as it is lived here by the sea and in the surrounding landscape.
