Watercolour Commissions

John is now accepting commissions for 2019, having completed the paintings commissioned by kind patrons during the summer and autumn. Studies have included another fine garden,a farm estate, coastal golf links,railway studies, a super yacht and several pieces for which John is well known, the coastal landscape and people of North Norfolk.John's current focus is to record the quiet corners of wayside, woodland and coast in the form of watecolour sketches. 

If you wish to surprise someone with an original watercolour for a special occasion, including a personalised greetings card of the painting, please get in touch and with a bit of notice, it can be done.

Recent and forthcoming projects and exhibitions

During winter 2008 - 2009, John completed a series of watercolours based on studies of the Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina for his many friends, patrons and members of The World Methodist Council. This resulted in the publication of a Devotional Guide to Lake Junaluska in which the watercolour images formed the basis and inspiration for visitors to Methodist conferences, retreats and seminars.

To view these images visit the web site of Lake Junaluska.

During 2010 and 2011 John  continued to hold solo exhibitions along the Norfolk coast and during the winter of 2011 completed a number of commissions for notable patrons. In 2012 John has accepted an estate study, planned eight shows and continues his support of students through mentorship and the Wells MaritimeTrust. He has a close working relationship with Scira Offshore Energy and in April 2013 spoke about his work at the official opening of their new operations centre on Walsingham Estate. There is now a permanent collection of John's original watercolours at the centre, known affectionately as 'The Hurst Wall'. 2014 and 15 has seen John complete an estate study for Liam Botham, a collection of six Cley studies and the Tidal Transit fleet in Wells Harbour for Leo Hambro. After the 2015 Autumn shows finished, John tackled another estate study in Devon and confirmed his 2016 exhibition fixtures with a new venue in the form of Oddfellows Hall, Sheringham.

2017 was another busy year,after a series of very successful exhibitions, culminating in several interesting and varied commissions. These have included an estate study in Essex and a composite watercolour of Maidwell Hall School,Northamptonshire, designed to be published as fine prints in support of the school charity.Finally, for 2017, John completed a 'full imperial sheet' watercolour of Salthouse as a private commission and another composite of Aylsham watermill and is now working towards his 2018 exhibitions by creating new watercolours with 'site specific' content for each exhibition.

In 2018, Johns completed a successful exhibition at Cley marshes for the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, this year being his 11th annual show there.Exhibitions have also taken place at Blakeney and Sheringham, where both new and old patrons very kindly acquired new watercolours. The Maidwell Hall School project was completed by the school acquiring publishing copyright in order to produce prints for their charity projects.John is grateful for this support and proud to be associated with a fine establishment.
