Robin Jones – Original Realism Style Water Colour Paintings
Original realism style water colour paintings of Nova Scotia. All work is original, no copies or reprints. Commissions are accepted.
All work is available for sale by appointment or chance at my home. Commissions are accepted from your photos, or my photos of your preferred site. My website has a large variety of my work.
I began drawing at an early age, and painted with oils for a short time. After retiring in 2002 I decided to try painting with watercolour - this has been my challenge ever since. I am a self taught artist and have had no formal art education.
I paint only in the realist style, and generally paint exactly what I see. My subjects are varied, but all are scenes and subjects in Nova Scotia. Most of my works are of the Halifax area, but I also paint scenes in the Yarmouth area and the South Shore.
My works are all original, I paint only from scenes that I have seen or photographed. With the exception of commissioned work, I do not use other peoples photos. I do not make copies or prints, but often will paint a scene more than once, but change the lighting, season or viewing angle.
I am a juried water colour artist of the Nova Scotia Designer Craft Council.
I exhibit and sell my work at gift shops and craft shows in Nova Scotia.
