The one Society dedicated to promoting watercolour painting in Scotland, the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW) is launching its 142nd Annual Exhibition, showcasing the top Scottish artists working with water-based media today at Edinburgh’s RSA Upper Galleries. An extensive online show is available via the Society’s website (see panel). Entry is free, with tickets available online and at the door.

David White attended the press view and adds, ‘It was a real pleasure enjoying the work of so many of my favourite artists. Seeing what can be done in water-based media is always a revelation, and the imagination and technical mastery each artist brings to bear on his/her pieces upturns your preconception of of what a watercolour is.’ I’ve appended a few pieces that struck me in particular, but the quality is uniformly stellar and the variety of pieces so wide, that on visiting you’re bound to find something that will strongly impress you almost as you enter’.

The vast walls of the RSA allow a good amount of eye-level display, and breathing-space for each image.
