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

The preview evening which is always well attended



On the 19th Feb 2019 Anthony Nield Artist and Illustrator demonstrated painting a watercolour landscape in which he showed us how to paint a very convincing sky within 2 minutes


With 25 years experience using watercolours in the last 4 years he has been experimenting with Pen and Ink a medium which he finds relaxing


Anthony has painted in numerous locations around the world and whilst working in Bermuda he exhibited with the Bermuda Arts Society where two of his paintings were awarded Presidents Choice and now form part of the collection of the Masterworks Foundation Gallery


He is a regular contributor to The Leisure Painter publication and produces limited prints and paintings of local Kent scenes


Thank you Anthony for a very interesting demonstration incorporating useful tips
