Fine Art Watercolours

Passionate about traditional art with delicate fine detail, Darren Graham’s original watercolours step away from moderism.  Focused on a style that would have been popular 200 years ago, each unique piece is the artists incredibly lifelike interpretation.

Creative inspiration comes from music, nature, the Laois county side, animals and the intersection of “nature and human”.   Darren then translates these ideas into beautifully detailed fine art watercolour paintings.

Fine Art Watercolours Abstract Compositions

Drawing on what the real world looks like, abstract paintings uses composition, colour, perspective and more, to create something that is new and different.  “Neil And Me”, for example, was inspired by Neil Young’s Harvest Moon album and this composition reminds Darren of his father.
