Over a hundred years ago, Blyth had a lot of windmills. I did this stylised one from a black and white photo of a 19th century pencil drawing. I like working like that – it gives my imagination plenty to play with.

Here are three other views I did of this windmill:

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.

    Brilliant work Dave! May I ask what did you use?

  • This reply is probably two years too late, but the answer is watercolour :-)

  • I just noticed that I’d replied to you using comment instead of reply. I didn’t want you to think I was ignoring you, so I am adding it now – better late than never.

    Penny – I used watercolours. May I mention that all of my work is just A4 sized. It all started when I bought a display book. I keep all my pictures in display books. I think I must be a frustrated illustrator. Some of my pen and ink scenic pics have been used in magazines, but as it was a small venture I only received complimentary copies of the books. I’ve sold 6,500 prints of assorted pen and ink scenes in my town since 1989, but i haven’t sold any colour work. I am not allowed to sell now because I receive a state benefit for ill health and can’t earn anything or I’ll be penalised. I’m still learning how to do colour work, so feel free, all of you, to offer tips.

  • P.S. Nowadays I use A3.

    I don’t think you need any help with color – or colour! You have a unique style that is perfect for book illustrations. When my children were small I only bought them books with good illustrations – and of course good stories too – although they didn’t necessarily go together. Yours would have passed my exacting standards.

  • What a lovely comment … many thanks.

    Not sure that you need more tips. Seems fine to me. It’s a picture of good things, interesting things, around the corner. Could never handle water colours too well. I love messing around with oil paint.

  • Thanks – we are all different, because I find oils difficult – messy …. or is that just me who is messy ☺

    its amazing work,it would be easier for you to do it as you see it,,but your own style its got to be harder to do,to me its like a photo that you take and then have to manipulate to the style of your choice,,,but all the curves have to go with each other ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,o i will shut up

  • Don’t ever shut up – I value your comments Sean.
