Today, we visit with a pair of brothers who have been producing works of art displaying this countries beautiful cities, towns, villages and historical sites. #PhilipMartin and his brother #GlynMartin have been painting for over thirty years. They have traveled thousands of miles and produced a fine catalogue of images from which they produce a limited set of prints (runs limited to 850 copies). They have entitled their catalogue #Portraits of Britain and it continues to grow as they further their travels to capture this beautiful land. The watercolour and ink drawings are masterfully done taking care to detail and accuracy.
The piece in my collection is titled ‘Liverpool’ and was drawn and coloured in 1984 by Philip Martin. It shows (from left to right) the ‘Royal Liver Building’ the ‘Cunard Building’ and the ‘Port of Liverpool Building’ with a small portion of harbour/river frontage. This watercolour drawing is very accurate architecturally and speaks so very well of the artists superb technical ability and his eye in capturing an amazing scene in the life of Liverpool, the city.
