“Sailing Ship and Paddle-steamer Tug off the Coast of Britain”
Watercolours on paper 6.7/8” x 21”
Charles Taylor Junior exhibited at the Royal Academy, The British Institute, Suffolk Street galleries, The New Watercolour Society and many more.
He frequently depicted the images of sail and steam together in his work, showing vessels often seen struggling in turbulent waters. He so brilliantly captured the rhythm and movement of the waves with his Gum-Arabic- heightened, deep-green tempest, which he always drew with great restraint, care and expertise, adding scratching out to great effect to create the “white horses” suggested by the breaking and foaming of the surf.
Absolutely distinctive and beautiful were the paintings of Charles Taylor Junior, so fine and elegant that his inimitable works are always instantly recognizable, although rarely signed by him. The attention to minute detail and his exquisitely fine draughtsmanship are seen consistently in every painting.
