'The Royal Academy of Arts, London' exhibition at Bendigo Art Gallery

It's been a long time since I took a trip to this beautiful town.

My appreciation for those 'academy' paintings has changed tremendously since I started to go to Gregory's lesson.

It's a very tricky business to define what the quality of paintings mean. These days, I do see the beauty of these paintings and rock-solid foundations of skill that underlie.
Just studying the colours and tonal balance alone leaves me in awe.

Turner, Constable, John Singer Sargent, John Waterhouse.... These big names along with artists I've never heard of. This exhibition is a great opportunity for us to reassess enduring beauty of academic paintings.

I also thought it's very clever to display Australian artists who were involved in Royal Academy, like, Tom Roberts and Rupert Bunny.

It's a great pleasure to see these works from London in this regional gallery.
