The Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours 208th show is the largest exhibition of its kind in the world, showcasing over 400 of the best contemporary water-based media paintings from around the globe. Since its founding in 1831 the RI has become universally recognised as one of the leading art institutes. 

Showing a diversity of styles and techniques, the exhibition is an annual survey of how contemporary artists are using this age-old medium and a great place to pick up vibrant, original works with prices starting from £350.
