River Tyne Sunset Print


One of the first commissions I received when I went self employed back in 1984 was to do two original watercolours of the River Tyne near North Shields Fish Quay for a leading North East businessman.

Over the years I’ve enjoyed going back to the reference material I gathered back then to do fresh interpretations of the same scenes. My watercolour style and technique has changed over the years but it still ends up being a joy to tackle paintings of the Tyne which capture a bygone era.

This painting has been inspired by the studies I made of the River Tyne when there was so much more shipping and industry.
