Latest Pictures From Darkest Devon

ROI President Peter Wileman has kindly sent us some of his latest pictures from his recent  painting trip to Devon. Some cracking work Peter! His next one man show is to be in Harrogate in Yorkshire next month. Details to follow shortly.

And here's a picture of Peter's beloved Chevrolet he drove to Devon in. You can see he is unloading some of his sketches he did down there. He will need to sell a few of those to pay for his petrol as he tells me the car only does 10 miles to the gallon. Now that's what I call a carbon footprint!
