English Watercolours Tony Cowlishaw, resident artist of English Watercolours, is an established professional artist based in Nottingham, working in oil and watercolour media, who has exhibited at Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery and the University of Nottingham Art Gallery. He specialises in original rural landscape, coastal and marine subjects painted in the traditional English watercolour style. The landscape paintings include Cumbria, Yorkshire, The Cotswolds, Norfolk and areas in the south of England. His policy is to sell original paintings, not prints. He exhibits his work at Craft Shows throughout the United Kingdom. Several hundred paintings of his are sold throughout the country each year and are in collections, not only in this country but throughout parts of the world. He also specialises in portraiture in oils and over the past few years has completed fourteen portraits commissioned by the University of Nottingham including portraits of Their Graces the Duke and Duchess of Rutland which hang in Rutland Hall at Nottingham University, as well as many private commissions. In 1992 he was commissioned by the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford to paint a portrait of the retiring Nuffield Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Oxford. Following presentation, the portrait was exhibited at a reception at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. In 2000 he developed an Internet site devoted to English watercolour painting which came online in October 2000 at http://www.english-watercolours.com.
