Examples of his design and artwork have appeared, together with articles, in national and inter-national magazines and books.

He was elected a Fellow of the prestigious Chartered Society of Designers, London and is a Fellow of the Australian Society of Marine Artists. Whilst the focus is on water-colour he also paints in acrylics, pastels, line and wash. Always acknowledging that there is more to learn he, nevertheless, tutors for art societies which enables him to share his knowledge with others.

Earl Hingston has a passion for watercolour painting, especially landscapes, marinescapes and nautical scenes, boats and buildings, generally subjects with character.

His watercolours have an emphasis on brush calligraphy and design, this coming from his professional career as a graphic designer for advertising and corporate visual communication. He believes in the importance of drawing skills, an often neglected (for too long) aspect of painting.
