44 - THE PAGODA - KEW GARDENS - WATERCOLOUR & INK - DAVE EDWARDS - 1986 by 


FEATURED BY PAINTERS UNIVERSE GROUP – 11th March 2011

FEATURED BY SAFE HAVEN GROUP – 11th March 2011

Kew gardens is a peaceful haven in London (UK) and this is the famous Japanese-style pagoda.

Ralph McTell write a lovely song called Kew Gardens and here is a version I like by Mary Hopkin, a Welsh singer.

I used ink and watercolour for this picture, which I drew in 1986.

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    this is amazing Dave,,, your control doing the straight lines just blows me away…. I hope this one sold already,, peace and love linmarie

  • Thanks, but everyone assumes I do the sky lines free-hand … of course I don’t … I use a ruler, as do most artists who use this style (which is based on Victorian engraving techniques). I haven’t sold any cards of anything for a long time. My work gets favourited regularly and featured by Groups, but no-one buys these days.

    Your pen and ink work is brilliant!! did you use a ruler to keep the lines straight? What a wonderful talent you have, my friend!! i look at this picture with awe… it’s so magnificent! I LOVE IT!!!

  • You are so kind in your comments Barb. The lines that compose the sky are with a ruler. I can’t remember if I used one for the building itself; I may have used one for a few guidelines … it was 25 years ago and I have enough problems remembering what I did last week :) Have you had your birthday yet? If not, Happy Birthday for when it happens. You’ll be 16 – did I get that the right way round?

    Beautiful…so precise! Very well done.

  • Thank you. When I drew this, our daughter was only three and our son had yet to be born – it’s sort of a historical item now …. they’ll be putting me in a museum soon – not my pictures – just me :)
