The Bath Society of Artists’ 113th annual exhibition goes on show at the Victoria Art Gallery in Bath this spring. Formed in 1904, with just 26 members, the society boasts many distinguished 20th century painters amongst its numbers, including Walter Sickert, John Singer Sargent, Philip Wilson Steer, Gilbert Spencer, Patrick Heron, Mary Fedden, Willian Scott and Howard Hodgkin. The eagerly anticipated 2018 exhibition will include work by members as well as that chosen from open submission. Last year there were more than 800 entries, from which 399 were selected for exhibition. Works will include paintings, drawings and sculpture by both established and up-andcoming artists, with an opportunity to vote for your favourite work.

About The Artist

Welcome to our May issue packed with inspiring practical features to help you develop your skills in all media. Watercolourists will love Bob Rudd's invented colour schemes for dramatic landscapes, Amanda Hyatt's five steps to watercolour success, with an exercise to try, Ann Blockley's invitation to inject some magic into your watercolour washes, Paul Talbot-Greaves' deconstruction into three parts of the painting of a daffodil, and Deborah Walker's test report on a new Winsor & Newton watercolour paper. Paul Riley and Julie Collins show how to use pen and wash and ink and watercolour in powerful combinations, while Jo Quigley demonstrates why working en grisaille in acrylics can be so beneficial. Portraitists will learn different ways to obtain a likeness from Ann Witheridge and Will Teather; adapt your sketching kit with ideas from David Parfitt; try painting seascapes in water-mixable oils with Paul Weaver, and more. And don't forget to enter our summer sketching competition with fantastic monthly prizes!
