My Blighty Girls show and auction in aid of Help For Heroes July 23rd at The Brownston Gallery Modbury raised over £1,000.  Based on 1940s wartime calendar girls.  Other quite different paintings are also on show.

Two Life drawing workshops for The Pilton Art Group in Barnstaple in November (11th & 18th) were very enjoyable and productive. Thanks to models Shan and Mandy and all the participants who entered into my erratic teaching with such gusto.

Please let me know if you would like me to organise a workshop (erratic or otherwise) for individuals or groups.

Following my exhibition at the North Devon Museum (see below) I gave an illustrated talk at the Broomhill Sculpture Park on Wednesday 13th March for North Devon Arts (North Devon Arts).

The exhibition The Constructed Female was at The Plough Arts Centre in November 2013, focusing on The Beauty of Imperfection referencing both my views of the self-made woman and, importantly, the way a painting is constructed - as a state of imperfection.  The show was a a sequel to The Structured Landscape in 2012.

On the 21st January 2013 Richard was awarded a small bursary for the 11th Open Art Show at the Museum of North Devon in an exhibition supporting 'Showreal' - the short film festival - see Blog entry.
