A Taste of Venice
Afternoon siesta of the street
Journey towards life
Tower Bridge at Twilight
An impressionist-style waterclour of Tower Bridge and the London skyline at twilight with a steam barge and it's smokey steam setting the scene to the right of the foreground. Painted in just 3 colours: raw sienna, light red and french ultramarine. This was commissioned. I'm currently undertaking a similar painting for a client using acrylic on canvas and I'm happy to take similar commissions in waterclour or acrylic.
Thames barge at Chelsea wharf
A Thames barge is moored alongside a wharf at Chelsea in London, I took the photograph that I used for the painting in 1988, by then both the barge and the wharf had been outmoded for a long time, their purpose of use altered from being worked by occupation and commerce to becoming abodes to be lived in. Change didn't destroy them but it did destroy the ways of life they supported.
Sunset on Liberty
An original watercolour of the sun setting behind the Statue of Liberty. The Manhattan skyline can be seen in the background. Signed by the artist: D Shawcross. Framed and ready to hang. Frame: A 35mm luxury wide reverse shaped dark walnut (with a gold inner edge) coloured picture frame made from real ayous wood with a stain finish. Acrylic safety glazing and 55mm luxury deep-bevel single ivory mount.
Winter in New York
Breaking dawn at Billingsgate Market
Broadcasting in the snow
Slight departure from the landscapes... spotted this juxtaposition of buildings as I was walking home from town one wintery day. It's one of many similar scenes that make Macclesfield an interesting and not-too-gentrified place to live. There's oodles of history here and it's reflected round the town wherever you go. Oil on canvas. Framing extra - contact me.
