Beautiful Britain - Newcastle upon Tyne, England 1853 by 


A digital painting using Whistler’s rainbow in DAP, Gimp & FastStone, of the quay at Newcastle.

All ‘out of copyright’ information and the original black & white book illustration are by courtesy of the Gutenburg Project.

The view of Newcastle is taken from the Gateshead shore, on the south side of the river Tyne, about a quarter of a mile below the bridge.

From the point chosen by the artist, a better and more characteristic view of the town is obtained than from any other station. The line of vessels, extending from the right of the engraving to the bridge, indicates the quay—the longest in England, except that of Yarmouth—and which, on a Saturday, when the country people come in to market, is one of the most crowded thoroughfares in the kingdom (1853)

    Phantastic work!

  • Thank you Marlies :)
    I thoroughly enjoy working on these digital paintings and bringing back to life old and faded 19th century drawings. Especially, as in this case when in black & white.
    So much so that I have now completely stopped my own output of graphite & coloured pencil drawings.
