A Pear in Watercolour and ink

Graham Thew November 22, 2020

The theme of this week’s Sketchers’ challenge was fruit so I decided to have a go at another video tutorial and the fruits of my labour you can find on the “info sheets” page of this website  (or Youtube). But I thought it might be of interest to post the photo below showing that these…Read More »

Boat drawings

Graham Thew November 2, 2020

Further to the info sheet on drawing boats I thought I would post another couple of pages of boat drawings. One a fairly straightforward couple of boat drawings/sketches and the other four, well almost “doodled”, fishing boats just made up from my head  & knowledge of the variety of boats out there. Actually quite a…Read More »

As the Sun Sets. A Landscape.

Graham Thew September 25, 2020

I’m intrigued by the way that as the sun sets, the colours created by the extremes of light can transmorph the landscape into shapes that you could never imagine. Nor could you imitate the transition  with anything other than a painting. A photograph is an instant and will never register the “feel” or three dimensional…Read More »

Watch to the Horizon

Graham Thew

It is also a slightly more realistic rendition of the people without trying too hard to…Read More »

So I thought I should update my pictures of the building by undertaking this study. Hope you like it! It is available as a limited edition (50) Giclee…Read More »

The Horizon Watchers

Graham Thew

I have recently finished this picture which was in the planning stages for such a long time. The core of the work is the idea of horizon and how we all seem to be always waiting for whatever may be waiting for us beyond this enigmatic line. It’s always a positive thought and the concept…Read More »

However with no open cafe there is really nowhere to shelter should the heavens open as looks likely….Read More »
