Royal Institute of Oil Painters Annual Exhibition Private View

Yesterday was the Private View of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters Annual Exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London.
We were delighted to have as our guest speaker Gyles Brandreth who, quite frankly, brought the house down! A splendid afternoon enjoyed by everyone.

Below a few pics of the occasion, and prizewinners.
