Paintings of North Shields

Paintings North Shields is one of the the themes on Alan Reed Painting Blog post.

The painting of three lads putting bait on their fishing rods was inspired by a smaller watercolour sketch painted on location. I recall looking into the late afternoon sunlight, working with a limited palette. Low sunlight is sparkling on the River Tyne. Dramatic cloud shapes take your eyes towards the focal point, creating a strong composition. Choose your favourite paintings of Tyneside North Shields from our Newcastle Art Collection.

Artists Support Pledge

North Shields Fishing and North Shields Fading light are two Original Paintings that are for sale through the Artist Support Pledge.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists found themselves without work, teaching, technical support and gallery work. 

Artists post images of their work, on Instagram which they are willing to sell for no more than £200 each (not including shipping). 

Once an artist sells 5 paintings, they pledge to buy another artists work for £200.

This generous strategy has been successful in helping artists worldwide.

Anyone can buy the work. Every time an artist reaches £1000 of sales, they pledge to spend £200 on another artists work.

Buy an Original Watercolour of the North Shields Fish Quay or “Dark Skies over a Big River“.

This effective watercolour has been painted on hand made paper from Fabriano in Italy. I’ve been to the Fabriano paper Mill in the Marches region of Italy on two occasions to purchase their beautiful paper and leather bound sketchbooks.

Bill Quay

Several months ago I received an enquiry about taking on a commission to do a watercolour painting of Bill Quay. Bill Quay on the River Tyne holds special personal memories for the family. We discussed a specific size that would fit with her budget and I went one evening to Bill Quay to do a small sketchbook watercolour of the scene that the client had in mind.
