An African watercolour safari: A demonstration with Hazel Soan

DSWF is delighted to host Wildlife Artist of the Year Judge and our long-time supporter, Hazel Soan, for a demonstration and exploration into the wonderful world of watercolour. Think of it as an African watercolour safari. You can experience Hazel’s unique style and watch LIVE as she recreates beautiful African landscapes and wildlife before your very eyes.

Join us on Tuesday 15 June (5.30pm UK time) to explore the delicate art of watercolours, learn about Hazel’s work and ask her your most pressing questions! Tickets are FREE but donations are welcomed. Make sure you get in quick so you don’t miss the opportunity to see a modern watercolour master at work!

About Hazel Soan:

Hazel Soan is one of Britain’s most admired watercolourists, well-known internationally through her numerous books, DVD films and social media, and through her television roles on mainstream painting programmes such as “Watercolour Challenge” and “Splash of Colour”.

Hazel has been represented through many solo and mixed exhibitions and her work is held in public, corporate and private collections, including the National Portrait Gallery, Embassies, The BBC, and major London hospitals, international hotels and finance houses. She is known for her direct wet-into-wet watercolour approach, use of rich pigment and strong contrasts of light and shade, developed directly from painting in the African Bush.

Hazel has a longstanding involvement with the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation and has been one of the judges of The Wildlife Artist of the Year (WAY) Competition since its inception. Her enthusiasm for painting and the ability to inspire others to paint has taken her around the world, from the Kalahari to the QE2 and from Royal palaces to remote kraals. She has studios in London and Cape Town.
