Don't know yet- they tell you by June 4th. Last year on June 4th!

They will say no…mark my words…in the meantime more paintings. Just watercolour sketches.

Sadly Michelle it isn't an honour- you just pay your £50, submit two paintings, queue in a very long queue to leave them at the RA and return home to wait for them to be rejected…then you queue again to collect them, then go to the Summer Show and see the sub-GCSE standard stuff that DID get selected and you vow never, ever to do it again. Until the next time.

Been online occasionally but rather too busy trying to catch up on everything that didn't get done  in the real world when I was ill to indulge in active foruming!

Your interest is appreciatedBig_Hug to one and all

Kate - understand completely about your thoughts of the GCSE standard-stuff.

A lot of things now is a bit "King's new clothes" isn't it? Especially the Turner Prize ........... Tracey Emin was asked once if she could paint "Heavens, I don't need to be able to paint to be an artist!"

I read somewhere that Damian Hirst also has a studio of artists to paint for him ...... oh well. Whistle

Kate, I love your style of art - very free-flowing, and calming.

I have watercolour pencils, and have ended up doing a lot of detailed pictures, which I suppose can be good, but at the same time, I would like to be able to do other styles.

Currently I have a triptych of sunflowers on my board in France - I must get around to completing it!!!!

Keep up with your lovely paintings - if they are rejected by the RA - it is their loss.

Ah, I've now been able to read your post Kate-had to go into edit mode to do so. I didn't realize you had to pay to submit your work and I agree with you about the sub-GCSE work. Good luck though!

I'll try that again!
