One of the newest paintings Stephen chose to show on this exhibition is ‘After Nouveau’  painted in watercolour and ink. Stephen says, “It was taken from a print I found in the October issue of the Artist Magazine 1896. It was an interesting, challenging but enjoyable project and was I very pleased with the finished painting.”

In his paintings, Stephen Evans shows an interest in various topics such as nature, animals, architecture, seascapes, people in action, and he is always willing to experiment with new subject or technique.
