  FRED SHEPHERD 1933-2019 £10 each  
Fred Shepherd, born 1933. Son of a master goldsmith, attended Colfe's School - winning an art prize but left in 1950 to take up a City career rather than pursue an arts degree in an unsettled economic situation and the need to complete National Service. Fred served in Japan and enjoyed an army-supplied studio so that he could continue painting. In the 1950's Fred exhibited at Lewisham Society of Arts, closely studying Rowland Hilder in that period. In 1965 Fred joined a group under Norman Smith (NEAC) to focus on watercolour. A career as a bank manager restricted the time available to paint but did enable him to mix in influential circles, and he served on the Greenwich Arts Council for almost 20 years. His own picture gallery followed early retirement in 1987 in Wittersham, Kent, specialising in English 19th and early 20th century watercolours. Fred continued painting, using the backdrop of the Oxney and Romney Marsh areas for many local works, exhibited in Rye, and undertook a great deal of work in Devon and in Europe. Fred - in his own words - always tried to capture the spirit of a place, how he saw it that day and of other people enjoying the spot he painted that day too.
