Exhibition of Watercolours Around St Neots by John Bell
Professional artist John Bell has been producing original paintings for over 45 years.
The work he now creates is based in a style he first developed for illustrating books. His paintings are watercolour based, enhanced through layers and then finished with variety of mixed medium to create the effects much favoured by current art-related product manufacturers. (Mediums used on each of his painting can include watercolour, acrylic, hard and soft pastel, gouache, ink, charcoal, and graphite pencil).
His work is very popular with greetings card manufacturers that pay an annual licence fee to print copies from his original art. John now holds a portfolio of over 1200 images of the paintings he has produced over the years and his agent continues to issue licenses to a variety of manufacturers worldwide.
This exhibition showcases recent work, in particular watercolours of the St Neots area.
