Welcome to Nick Watton’s Website
Hi, I’m an artist based in the South West of England, passionate about painting, drawing and sketching.
“Strolling through life with a paintbox in my rucksack (and perhaps a flask of tea)”
A selective look at some of my Illustration work. I always enjoy researching each subject, then designing and producing the artwork for each commission. Above, is the new children’s book that author, Triona Harris and I worked on together.
I’m a freelance artist and illustrator working in the South West of England. I have been drawing and painting all my life trying to capture the world around me. In my paintings and drawings, you will see my love of boats, wildlife, countryside & people (not necessarily in that order!) I use oil and watercolour paint, charcoal and pencil. I’m a huge fan of sketching whenever I am able and offer hints & tips along the way.
