An exhibition of 40 works in watercolour and monotype.

“Robert Newton started showing his understated watercolours with us in 2018 and immediately gathered an enthusiastic following. We’re delighted to be holding his first one man show with us throughout July.”

Robert’s works reflect a continuation of a long-term project; a study of a fixed frame surrounding an evolving panorama. Travelling through the landscape, utilising public transport, especially railways and buses, Robert sketches and photographs a passing window view of the countryside.
