Paint Along with Nancy

STILL RETAINS a sizeable cult following to this day. Of all the numerous art school/Sunday painting shows down the years, Nancy Kominsky’s weekday lunchtime oil class has stayed in the consciousness the longest, probably due to huge cachet with school-avoiding children of the ’80s. Subjects included Wind on Exmoor, Rainy Day in London, Moon Over Lake Tahoe and Still Life With Eggs. Occasional guests tried their hand, including ALAN TAYLOR and ED STEWART. The cocktail jazz theme and end-credits resume where the picture painted itself in stop-motion animation are legend.

“For women viewers interested in submitting their entries on the theme of Love to the Paint Along with Nancy competition, before January 14, the address is, Nancy Kominsky Competition, TV Times, PO Box 40, Kettering, Northants…

“…There has been a great response to our TV Times Paint Along With Nancy competition, to paint a picture of one or more of the Royal Family. The winning entries will be picked this week from regional finalists, on daily public display at the Chenil Galleries, Chelsea, London, between March 11 and March 18 (please note: gallery closed on Sunday, March 13). Helping to choose the winners will be Annette Crosbie, who last year won a TV Times Award for her portrayal of Queen Victoria in Edward the Seventh.”

    For many years I thought this was filmed in Spain. A great artisan and don’t forget the ochre!
