The Birmingham Watercolour Society have received some sad news today, Hon Member David Rees passed away in the early hours of this morning 20th December 2016 following a long illness.

Our thoughts & condolences go out to his wife Ivy and family at this sad time.

David was a lovely kind person and a great watercolourist, very often his paintings would include his favourite subjects,  Horses or Boats, often painted plein air, in the countryside or during his trips to Cornwall.

David was also Hon Member of the Easel Club Birmingham.

He will be sadly missed.

Funeral arrangements will be given to us as soon as possible and announced on this website.
