Hello, I’m John Bangay and welcome to my website. Here you will find most of my drawings and watercolours of some of England’s most famous preserved historic buildings, as well as a growing number of videos about some of these famous places I have drawn and painted.
I like to make detailed drawings, using a traditional ink pen technique and I try to make sure that the particular architectural quality of the building is shown as clearly as possible, even if it sometimes means removing other foreground buildings or trees. My watercolours are generally softer and more impressionistic.
The history of these great buildings has always fascinated me and I hope you will find my video stories and printed descriptions informative and entertaining. You will find details of where you can purchase my pictures on several of the catalogue pages.
