It was great sadness that we recently heard of the death of UKCPS member, John Hayes. John had been a member since December 2006, and was particularly noted for his fine drawings of classic, vintage, and modern sports cars. His skill in this subject had earned him the Associate membership of the Guild of Motoring Artists. However, John's subjects covered a wide area, and in recent times he had produced some lovely pictures of preserved steam engines, of which 'The Mallard' [shown right] is one.
For the time being, you can still view John's website featuring many examples of his work via: http://1-john-hayes.artistwebsites.com/index.html.
John's death is a sad loss to the society, and to the art world as a whole. We extend our deepest sympathy to his family at this time.
