Cambridge Drawing Society member Alan Noyes has been selected from over 1,000 entries to appear alongside artworks by some of Britain’s leading watercolour artists. The Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours 208th Exhibition will be on display at Mall Galleries from 2 to 17 April.

Alan was born in Ipswich, Suffolk in 1942. He was granted a scholarship in art at Northgate Grammar School and was fortunate to receive training under Colin Moss at the Ipswich School of Art.

He qualified as an architect and now retired, paints full time in his studio in Chedburgh, Suffolk.

He is a member of the Society of East Anglian Watercolourists and of the Cambridge Drawing Society.

He has been painting all his life but since retirement, is now able to devote his time to his love of watercolour.

Alan has successfully exhibited at the Dockyard Gallery Bermuda where he held the position of Artist in Residence with The Bermuda Masterworks Foundation. He spent three months working and painting on the island, culminating in a very successful one man exhibition and the offer of a return visit.
