10th October 2020 and three New John Waterhouse limited editions will go live with us on the 22nd of this month. The trio will include a panoramic landscape (and we need them, as there no canvas ones available!), his first canvas ones since 2019's: 'A Place To Dream' & 'The Life We Share'...
....as well as two smaller editions. We will be excited to showcase this new trio, from the UK's best loved traditional landscape artist.
August 2020: John's art continues to bring cheer and sell fantastically during the Covid19 crisis, as we all seek the return of better days and his stunning countryside vista's reminding us of the British indomitable spirit.
The 15th May 2020 marks the release of a selection of New Waterhouse originals for May 2020 - contact us to view or commission him.
In what maybe a pleasant surprise for some, you will see John is accomplished in painting with full-colour palettes, as he inspires and transports you to peaceful and refreshing new vistas!
15th November 2019 sees John release New Christmas Releases: a set of four limited edition (on paper) prints, each relatively small and ideal for the Christmas gift market. It has been a while since he has released a quartet of same size pieces at once and its a welcome addition to his growing range produced by Demontfort Fine Art publishers.
Sales of John’s limited editions and original paintings make him one of the most commercially successful landscape artists of the past 20 years with perhaps his only equal being Lawrence Coulson; his artwork is instantly recognizable as ‘Waterhouse’ paintings, with a distinct sepia or monochrome appearance in nearly all of his art up until 2011.
**Short video featuring John from 2015:
The 12th of April 2019 saw John unveil three new limited editions, the collection titled simply 'The New Collection' and featured what appears to be some of his largest (physical) size editions to date: landscape orientation 'This Life We Share' & 'A Place To Dream' and the square size 'A Moment In Time' - memorable for the deer & stag within.
18th June 2012 announces John's official first releases from Demontfort Fine Art Publisher, with the John Waterhouse Taking Time - Collection & his first since February 2011. John's own words about the new limited editions:
'I find the English countryside very romantic. Fields and trees to me have their own character and history just as a person does...'
****John creates a time lapse video - a Christmas themed pencil sketch for his followers! (2017):
John Waterhouse creates the most intricate and visually romantic artworks of the English countryside. A love of the outdoors was instilled within him from a young age whilst growing up in a rural Staffordshire village and he was inspired by continual walks outdoors, people watching and simply observing the scenery.
Using these visions, the artist creates his wonderful limited edition prints and canvas, using oils to paint the originals the prints will eventually be scanned, copies and giclee printed from.
Unknown to many, John’s parents also where in the art world and used to run successful galleries, an Ideal avenue to self-promote their son’s paintings and no doubt helping fuel his motivation as his career progressed.
Over the years, the demand for John to create more prints and paintings has increased and this saw him transitioning from: leaving school, working as a store keeper in a local warehouse, gradually reducing his working hours in order to continue practicing his craft & then switching careers to teach painting to young offenders in prisons.
However, the investment in becoming a professional artist, meant that John slowly but surely had to give up his tutoring and focus on painting, something I am personally glad he did!
After exhibiting his work around the UK and teaching himself the discipline to dedicate many hours painting in the studio, he has produced a huge body of work and has cemented his artistic reputation.
Limited Edition giclees such as ‘Golden Gate,’ portray the great understanding and connection the artist has with his rural subjects, trees. I feel the notion of light & the time of day this reflects, plays a huge role within his images and I am constantly guessing if I am studying John’s depiction of the morning or evening in some, far off, idyllic English village.
John's most recent Solo exhibition of 2019 was on the Cunard Queen Victoria ship, within their onboard exclusive gallery.
An internet search will often bring up another famous English artist of the same name ‘John William Waterhouse aka J.W. Waterhouse (1849-1917), a 19th century a pre-Raphaelite styled painter & the two artists are not related.
