Saturday 17 June turned out to be a
swelteringly hot day, well suited to the tropical
theme of this year's Fair, and certain members
of our HWG team were well in tune with this.
We had a very busy day, except during the
very hottest part of the afternoon when every-
one vanished, presumably into a darkened room
except all the unfortunate stall holders.

The Group was founded in 1980 as part of the Highgate Society
(www.highgatesociety.com) with the aim of enabling
enthusiastic watercolour painters to work together in an
informal friendly atmosphere. We are a mixed bunch – some of
us have painted professionally over a lifetime (and are
members of top London art societies, and in one case, an
international art society), some are newer converts to the
joys of watercolours and other paper-based media. Some of us
also paint in oils and acrylics. We are
enthusiastic about a variety of subjects and really enjoy
painting buildings and townscapes, landscapes and seascapes,
still life, portraits, and, of course, Highgate and other
North London local scenes. If you are thinking
about buying art online, you may like to know that our work
is mainly affordable, and we welcome enquiries.
We are based in 10A South Grove (opposite Pond Square), Highgate, North London (the Highgate Society's premises), where we paint regularly on Thursdays, but we quite often go out and paint together either locally or further afield. We also have periodic visits from professional tutors and models.
We have an autumn show annually in Highgate, as well as
occasional much smaller displays. We also have a stall
at the Highgate Fair in the Square in June. There are
nearly 30 of us, and although our numbers are constrained by
the size of 10A Pond Square, we are always interested in
hearing from any experienced watercolour artists who would
like to join the Group. If you like the sound of the HWG,
please contact us or email our
