Nothing to do with the Drapers Company but Rosemary has had a picture selected for the forthcoming British Watercolours exhibition that is being held by the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours at the Mall Galleries (it is on from 30 March to 10 April).

|Magnolia by Rosemary Farrer. Watercolour 30cm square. This and otherv images also on www.rosemaryfarrer.com|
I think it is one of Rosemary's most interesting still life paintings where she has combined botanical painting with an almost abstract sens of image. She has also linked the translucence of watercolour with a denseness of colour normally associated with oils.
We are going to the private view on 29 March. I shall be on tenterhooks to see whether she has won a prize.
