It’s the final week of Water, Paper, Paint.
Water, Paper, Paint, the Royal Watercolour Society’s Spring Exhibition, is a celebration of the three fundamental elements that create a watercolour painting. From these three elements come a vast range of outcomes and in this show you will see huge variations in style, technique and genre.

London – A Sense of Place
“London has been the home of the Royal Watercolour Society since its foundation in 1804. Originally exhibiting in Pall Mall, then moving to Conduit Street in Mayfair (1938) before finally relocating to Bankside (1980), the Society has engaged with London for over 200 years.
Our artists have been inspired by its people, history, architecture, diversity and the many opportunities for artistic exploration and expression. London – A Sense of Place is a chance for the RWS to exhibit the works they have made in response to this extraordinary city.”

OFF THE WALL
28 July – 11 September
This annual summer exhibition is an opportunity for the Royal Watercolour Society and the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers to exhibit together and create a dynamic, ever-changing display of paintings and original prints. All works are sold ‘off the wall’ so you are able to take them away with you at the point of purchase. This results in an exhibition that you can visit throughout the summer, seeing new works every time.
Now Showing, entering final week:
MADE IN COLOUR
The Royal Watercolour Society’s Spring Exhibition, Made in Colour celebrates the huge variety of hues, shades and tones available to artists working in water-based media. Whether, transparent, opaque or somewhere in between, watercolour has the ability to be both light and soft or vibrant and bold. This exhibition will explore the many ways in which the Members of the RWS use colour in their practice.

The RWS Autumn Exhibition: Watercolour Journeys, explores one of the medium’s most fundamental qualities; its portability. Our artists have taken their palettes to the mountains of Nepal, tributaries of East Anglia, the Army bases of Afghanistan, the rocky cliffs of Pembrokeshire and the wilds of Texas, amongst many others.
