Artist Elwin Hawthorne, who was part of the East London Group of painters, sometimes painted watercolour pictures as preparation work before painting the final scene with oil paints. Elwin's son, also named Elwin, has kindly allowed me to share some of his father's work with you. I asked Elwin if his father's watercolour work had been exhibited and he said that as far as he knows his father did not exhibit his watercolour paintings or lino cut work.
When Elwin (senior)'s contract with the fine art gallery Alex Reid & Lefevre ended Elwin (junior) believes that his father started doing lino cut work as a hobby. Pictures of some of Elwin Hawthorne's watercolour paintings and lino cut prints are below - I think they're splendid and I hope you enjoy them too.
The watercolour below is of Devons Road, Bow, E3 and is signed "To Lilian from Elwin", Lilian was Elwin's wife (what a romantic and sentimental gift!).
