GWR Railway Artists

This is a page for any artists who would like to have a link to their work included. Not all their subjects have a GWR theme. Most recently added at the top.

Malcolm Root has produced a wonderful painting of new build Grange No 6880 for the society.  His other paintings are equally worth a look. Superb light is one of the features of his work, I feel.

Craig Tiley is also becoming very popular, not only for railway subjects but also for motoring and aviation subjects.  I particularly like his black and white drawing of 6880 on shed with 6430 and 5199.

Jonathan Clay is well-known for his lovely gouache paintings of locomotives and many a new build or restoration scheme has one of his portraits at the top of their web page.

Rob Rowland is a Gloucestershire-based artist who deserves to be better known among the railway fraternity. His GWR themed paintings and illustrations are largely around his home area in the Midlands and well worth looking at.

Philip Hawkins probably needs no introduction. His attention to detail and accuracy are legendary as is his ability to create the atmosphere of days when steam was an everyday reality

Jon Houser is a Welsh-based painter whose GWR paintings are mostly located in Wales.  His portrait of 2807 was commissioned for the Cotswold Steam Group who own the real engine.

Traction Art.  Atmospheric paintings by Nick Harling. Nick specialises in unusual subjects with an accent at the moment on Welsh themes.  He sells prints, Christmas cards and does commissions.

Frederick Lea is a resident artist on the Glos Warks Railway. Many of his subjects are of scenes on the railway around Toddington and he often produces paintings for GWSR publications.

John Austin is famous for his dramatic views of, predominantly, GWR scenes, especially those staged at night.  His new book, long awaited by his followers, ‘Smoke, Steam and Light’, is now available from his website.
