This week at Brush-Paper-Water...

The Cod and Lobster, Staithes, North Yorkshire, England
watercolor, 12" x 12"
Iain Stewart

Iain Stewart is another architectural illustrator who has moved into fine art in the past few years and is getting well-deserved recognition for his work. There is a clarity and crispness about his paintings that derives from his architectural work, but the emotional quality of the paintings raises them to a new level. His pleasure in exploring overlooked scenes of everyday life comes through in his work.

Please hop over to Brush-Paper-Water for more of Iain's work and a link to his blog.


  1. It's beautiful. So clean and crisp. Thanks for sharing this with us, Chris.

  2. You can tell he used to be an illustrator.

    This landscape has such a wonderful illustrative feel to it!

    As you already stated, very clean and crisp looking!


  3. iain is without peer - a phenomenal artist and a great guy too

  4. This painting is a mirror image and it is not the Cod and Lobster which is further along the harbour wall and not visible from this point

    1. Well, you took me by surprise, commenting on a blog post that's 10 years old. Iain's choices fall under the concept of artistic license -- he was not acting as a journalist here, but as an artist.


Stop in and say hello!!
