About Steve Letchford
Steve travels and walks in all areas of Scotland, England and Wales. There are some beautiful landscapes and buildings, that he enjoys discovering and sketching. He finds the time spent drawing ensures he becomes more aware of the surrounding atmosphere.
Back in the studio and the drawings are developed into watercolour paintings. The memories of the day return and mix with the reference material to help produce the works, using only the best artist quality materials, combined with the traditional British Watercolour technique to ensure transparency in the pictures.
