We just received an email from David Newens, long term attendee of our Open Studio:
’I was delighted to receive news that I have been elected an Associate Member of the Royal society of Portrait Painters. I thought I should let you know as 3 of the 4 candidate portraits I submitted for consideration were Heatherley Open Studio ’one day’ paintings; one from this year’s RP exhibition and two from previous RP exhibitions. My work at Heatherleys has been a key part of my success’.
Well done David, we’re very proud!
