  • Terms & Conditions


As anyone who has recently attempted to source an electrician or plumber will testify, there is currently an acute shortage of skilled workers. I came across this skilled tradesman sitting at his age-worn workbench illuminated through the subdued light of an antiquated window, carefully crafting a piece of metalwork. He seemed bemused when I asked if I could capture the scene. I explained that as with any endangered species it was my role to capture such scenes for the benefit of future generations. I used a limited pallet of watercolour with touches of hard pastel to achieve the final effect.
