Kate (our Education Officer) and I were putting the final touches to our programme for Summer Painting Days when this awful virus overtook. Now of course arranging any group painting outings is entirely inappropriate and foolish, so we are not.

If later in the Summer the situation improves we will post updates here on the RGA website. In the meantime stay safe, and please send images of work inspired perhaps by your garden to and we will display some here in place of the usual Summer painting images.

Stay safe, Karen


Here are the first of our "staying at home" Summer Painting Days works. Thank you Amanda for sending them in, lovely.

Please do send us your home sketches, paintings and doodles of what you can see from your home and garden, through your window, or like Amanda a flower display in a vase.

Normally, this is what Summer Painting Days are all about:

drawing of a stormy day

A programme of days throughout the summer when we meet up to paint and draw at various venues. This year we have a mix of new and those that proved popular last year to visit.

These are an opportunity to paint and sketch with like-minded souls. You can wander off on your own or join with friends and colleagues to find the view that inspires you, or both!

We like to meet up at the end of the day and share our results, but the day is totally unstructured, mix and mingle as you want. All members and friends are welcome; there is no RGA charge. You are responsible for individual expenses such as admission fees and parking if applicable and refreshments as you require.

Please bring along your own outdoor painting and drawing equipment.
It is a good idea to bring your own refreshments.

If you are interested in coming please phone Karen on 07709895274 or Nina on 07500543256 to let them know, leave a message if there is no answer and we will get back to you with directions and meeting arrangements for the beginning of the day.
