Stephen Evans exhibits at Park’s Café

Paintings collectionLocal amateur artist Stephen Evans is displaying a range of his paintings throughout November at Park’s Café in Victoria Square, Droitwich.

Stephen said: “Inspiration for my work comes from different sources but I mainly use my own photographs or those sent to me by family and friends. I like to choose challenging subjects to paint with watercolours and think that over the years I have developed a unique and interesting style.

The title of the exhibition is ‘Painting for Pleasure’ because of the enjoyment Stephen has creating his art. He hopes visitors will find pleasure viewing the selection of works on display. As this is the time of year when we Remember the men and women who lost their lives in two world wars and in more recent conflicts, Stephen has put together a display of paintings to recognise this very special occasion.
