About the RSW

The RSW is an artist led, Scottish Charity that exists to promote the art of watercolour painting in Scotland and beyond. Currently we have 123 members who are permitted to add the ‘RSW’ title after their name.

Our (active and very supportive) Royal Patron is HRH The Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay who recently, kindly invited all members of the Society to a Reception in Holyrood House, Edinburgh.

In addition to holding Annual Exhibitions (usually in Edinburgh) we arrange supplementary but important shows both in an Open format and member-only. The RSW has recently had a presence in London, Newport (Wales), Mallorca, Australia and nearer to home in Forfar, Dundee, and in 2013 we will be part of the Perth Festival of the Arts.
