‘This exhibition of works by Members of the Royal Watercolour Society showcases paintings created in the very recent present alongside those at the earliest points in their career, and everything in between. The display promises to provide visitors with a rare insight into the development of each artist’s creative output, as well as the opportunity to take a piece of work home, whether from now or then.’
1st to 31st October.
‘This latest display of artworks by the Royal Watercolour Society will delve into the challenges encountered by each artist during the Coronavirus lockdown. These extraordinary circumstances have meant that many artists have not been able to create in their usual media, and so for one time only we are excited to deliver an exhibition of Royal Watercolour Society artists, in all media.’
I have four works in the show. These are from a group of works that were languishing unfinished in my studio. Under a lockdown spring-clean I felt it was time to finish them.
On now 2 – 31 October 2020
Works on a small scale by artists from the Royal Watercolour Society and the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers. Contemporary watercolours and original prints, both framed and unframed, may be taken away immediately.
My Paintings in the show:
Charing Cross Road, The Garrick Theatre, London
In the Garden of the Blue House, Mexico City
Tortilleria, San Cristobal, Chiapas, Mexico
Mexican Spices, Oaxaca

I’m in Malta to launch the new book ‘Quinn in Malta’.
The book is edited and introduced by the late Peter Apap Bologna. He had been planning the book, its launch and the accompanying show for a year or more. Without Peter’s energy, enthusiasm and good humour the book would not have been completed. He encouraged me to paint new watercolours to show at the launch. On receipt of each new batch he was, as ever, hugely enthusiastic. He took especial delight in discovering my sketchbooks and preparatory drawings: these feature in the book and a good number have found their way to frames and are in the accompanying exhibition.
Peter passed away only two weeks ago. We miss him greatly. You can read an appreciation of him here: Peter Apap Bologna (1941-2019).
The launch takes place at St. Patrick’s School, don Bosco Street, Sliema on Saturday 9th November in the morning 11-1. All welcome.
Exhibition preview: Thursday 10 October, 6 – 8pm
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org

What is a Lithograph?
It’s a method of printing using a Limestone, crayons and ink. It relies on the fact that oil and water don’t mix. You can watch a video here. (https://youtu.be/S67Qqov0CdU)
Hole Editions is the workshop of Lee Turner. Lee is based in the Cluny building in the Ouseburn, Newcastle. He takes part in the regular Open Days. He collaborates with artists from near and far. Those featured on his website include George Shaw, Yoko Ono and the late Norman Cornish.
“All our work is hand printed and original. We use the most light fast inks available and high quality acid free papers. Editions are carefully curated and documented. Upon completion of projects the stones and/or plates are effaced, thereby preserving the integrity of the edition and ensuring that no further impressions can ever be printed.”
