Andrew wins 1st Prize at Windsor painting event

Andrew recently won 1st prize at the 2017 Windsor and Eton En Plein Air painting event.  Participants had to paint a scene within the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Impressions from Engine Court, Windsor Castle

Andrew’s picture is shown here, a 24 x 30″ acrylic on canvas called ‘Impressions from Engine Court, Windsor Castle’.

The 1st prize painting is presented to HM The Queen, to become part of her collection.



Marion at ‘Not the Royal Academy’

Marion says:

The Llewellyn Alexander Gallery accepted three pictures from me this year for their annual ‘Not the Royal Academy” exhibition, and when Jillian phoned to tell me which they had chosen, she made a point of saying “Oh, we want the London ones!”, so good news for us all, I guess!

The exhibition started on June 13th and my “Embankment” painting sold on the first day hurrah!  No news since then, but I’m still crossing my fingers for another sale (or two!) before the exhibition ends August 19th

The selectors are two critics, two artists and two collectors. My ‘Nunhead Cemetery’ (below) was selected by Sacha Craddock, art critic for the Guardian. My other piece ‘Autumn leads to Spring’ (mounted on aluminium) was selected by Celia Imrie. The photo shows her choosing my painting!

This is the 25th year of Discerning Eye. There is always a very good selection of work, and everything is for sale. More info on

Wendy Winfield in Pen and Ink

Nicky Sherrott writes:

Just thought to mention that some lovely examples of Wendy’s work appear in the recently published “Pen and Ink, contemporary artists, timeless techniques”, by James Hobbs: a compilation, in A5 format, of works by 35 artists, showing different styles, plus some text about each work. Well laid out – a pleasure and a help. Bravo, Wendy! One of her works was, I think, done on a Drawing London day out in Greenwich.
