Just a quick follow up to my last blog when I told you I had got through the first round of the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Well, I was tossed out in the final cut – so disappointing but that is the way it goes. I also got through the first round of the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition which is another big one but, again, didn’t make it through.
However, good news is I have a piece accepted in to the Wells Art Contemporary which has made it all the way through so that is encouraging. And I am looking at entries for the Bristol West of England Academy annual open exhibition. I have got work accepted there the last couple of years which has been great. I do think competitions are a good way of widening your audience, and providing a deadline! Both essential!
