Watercolour, Pen & Wash, Line Drawing 

It all starts ( and often ends) with a drawing- usually in strong, crisp ink -it
aways has, and always will. I’m not a painter in the classical sense, but use
the often unpredictable yet exciting medium of watercolour to highlight my
drawings.
I’m fascinated by contrasts: man-made structures against the natural landscape,
black, strong ink linework against the fluidity and looseness of watercolour,
bright light against dark shadow.
I strive to use as little paint as possible, preferring to let the drawing speak for
itself.

About The Artist

John Harrison Artwork

Yorkshire born and bred: a trained graphic designer with a strong illustrative style born from his voracious childhood reading: Rupert the Bear; Swallows and Amazons; Just William; the Narnia series, and countless comics from both sides of the Atlantic.
They all featured drawings which led directly to John’s current style of strong line drawings - usually in ink - with watercolour washes applied in varying degrees to focus the viewer’s eye.

John draws inspiration (pun intended!) from many sources -Yorkshire’s glorious Dales and Coast, the stunning Lake District, city, village and townscapes - always looking for dynamic
viewpoints with interesting perspective and strong light and shadows. His favoured subject matter features built structures in the wider landscape, exploring the contrast between the man-made and the natural. Largely self-taught, he doesn’t consider himself a painter, but uses the unpredictable yet exciting medium of watercolour to highlight his drawings.

He runs many workshops and classes, details of which are posted on his website. His work is in many private collections both in the UK and internationally, he undertakes commissions
both private and corporate- the most high profile and recent was a commission to illustrate the new branded packaging for Yorkshire Tea Gold, launched in October 2021.

He also took part in Sky Arts’ Landscape Artist of the Year, and the much-loved TV series Watercolour Challenge recently refreshed by Channel 5, which is due to broadcast in the winter of 2021.
