Article text
Nick's work "Arkengarthdale, near Fremington Edge" (at left) has been selected for the 2008 Royal Watercolour Society / Sunday Times Watercolour Competition, one of only 86 works chosen out of over 1,000 entries.

The RWS/Sunday Times Watercolour Competition (previously the Singer and Friedlander/Sunday Times Watercolour Competition), is one of the few remaining prizes to celebrate the diversity and beauty of the frequently undervalued medium of watercolour. Now in its 21st year, it is the largest and most prestigious watercolour competition in the UK. The Competition is a celebration of the water-soluble medium, whether it is an abstract, figurative or landscape piece, all works produced in water based mediums, watercolour, acrylic and gouache on a paper support are eligible.

The RWS/Sunday Times Watercolour Competition offers the highest valued prizes in the United Kingdom by awarding a total of £25,000 to artists who demonstrate a high level of skill and creativity. The judges for this year’s competition are: Brian Allen, Director of Studies at Paul Mellon Institute; Penny Johnson, Director, Government Art Collections; Frank Whitford, Art Critic for the Sunday Times; Anthony Green RA, Artist; Richard Sorrell, President, RWS
