John Brakell

John joined the Epsom & Ewell Art Group in 1996 shortly after retirement.  His interest in art, particularly drawing and watercolour painting, was first aroused at an early age and continued until he entered full time work.  A few years before retirement he was able to take up his interest in art once more, initially with pen-and-ink drawing and watercolour painting but now he paints mainly in oil colours.

He has a wide field of subject interest from landscape including urban landscapes, railway scenes and scenes of old rural machinery, coastal and marine scenes and even some pictures of wildlife.
