Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2015

I've somehow managed to avoid the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in the past. It does tend to fall at a time when all my weekends are full/we have other plans but I'm still not really sure how it took me until this year to finally make it. I have no intention of missing it again!

Now I knew it would be large in scale, and unlike any other exhibition I'd been to, but I was totally unprepared for 1131 artworks, and how slightly overwhelming and wonderful and inspiring the whole thing would be. I also had a burning desire to shop (most pieces are for sale) but managed to keep my purse in my bag!

So once the Jim Lambie staircase has wowed you, you're hit by the bright pops of colour in the first galleries - these galleries aren't crammed with quite as many works as the subsequent ones, so you're eased into it...

I found some new favourites (and spotted some old favourite artists in there too). Here are just a few shots of some paintings/groupings which really caught my eye - I can see why the hanging of this exhibition is such an epic task.

For some reason I was drawn to the images of buildings again - there were also some amazing architectural models.

For the first time this year the Royal Academy have made all the works available to view online - so head over to their site for a browse (and be prepared to loose an hour or two!).
