On the 18th June Pauline Hazelwood demonstrated painting a Steam Engine in water soluable oil paints

Pauline trained at the Central School of Art and Design as a graphic artist and then moved on to become an illustrator for book and magazine publications

Following the birth of her three sons she started to explore the use of oil paints and some of her portraits have been exhibited at The National Portrait Gallery

Pauline is interested in transport paintings but her particular love is for Steam Engines having been introduced to this world by a friend becoming fascinated by the work of miners and the part played by the steam engines

She is an Associate of the Guild of Railway Artists and now writes illustrates and publishes her own books for children based on true stories of these steam engines some snippets of which she shared with us

Pauline provided a lively demonstration using a limited palette to create harmony and combined brushes and palette knife to complete her painting
