Who are we?
The Group was founded in 1980 as part of the Highgate Society
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
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
around 25 of us, and although our numbers are constrained by
the size of 10A Pond Square, and we are currently full, we
are always interested in hearing from any experienced
watercolour artists who live reasonably close to
Highgate. If you like the sound of the HWG, please mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please bear in mind that we have an annual membership fee,
currently standing at £55.
