'Regent Street Looking South' oil on canvas 30 x 35 inches
I did the NEAC digital selection with 5 other members of the NEAC committee yesterday at The Mall. I am not a fan of digital selection at all and would prefer we did it all looking at paintings in the flesh. It is a cost cutting exercise (although there are benefits for those submitting too). All the open exhibitions now do it but it puts the emphasis on 'The Image' and not oil paint. Apparently it is a necessary evil and we erred on the side of caution selecting rather than rejecting. We saw some really good stuff…. I think!? Anyway good luck to anyone who submitted and if you were rejected it wasn't me. It was the others!
