The Summer Exhibition

The Royal Academy of Art’s Summer Exhibition is always fun, it’s very accessible to all as there is such a wide variety of art on show ranging from traditional painting, screen printing, mixed media, photography and digital art.

You name it they’re probably displaying it.

I went the other day and couldn’t resist snapping my favourite pieces of art and being quite shocked at how much some of them cost. I had many of those “I could probably do that myself for ¬£10,000 at home” moments!

You’ve only got until the 21st August to go, so get your skates on!

I loved this terracotta earth painting, it reminded me of how much I loved using texture, particularly sand when I used to paint. You would need a decent sized wall in your house though for it to work.

These ones reminded us a little of Matisse. Very colourful.

This was a very popular piece and by the number of red dots on the painting, lots of people have bought prints.

There were some very risque mini-sculptures too, I felt like every other school girl there taking a pic!

After having a good browse of the exhibition we headed out for lunch and found this mini street food market where we got some delicious popcorn chicken. All in all a lovely adventure.
