Hi, my name is Steven McClure and I am an artist and illustrator based in Glasgow, Scotland.
Living in the West End a lot of the work that you will see here is based around this area however, there are no limits on where I will draw.
Unlike many ‘urban sketchers’ out there, my drawing style involves a lot more time and detail, with particular attention on a blend of accuracy and imagery.
Many sketchers will sketch quickly ‘on-site’ whereas I like to take photos of the subject matter and work at my desk away from distraction.
This method can see you lose yourself for hours on an intricate piece.
I like buildings primarily, which stems from an architectural technician job I had for a year when I was in my late teens.
There are styles of ‘archisketch’ which use pencils and straight lines for accuracy, while at the other end of the scale you have freehand, flowing sketching - I’d say I’m somewhere in between - but have never used a pencil or a ruler to date.
To date I am fortunate enough to have sold work throughout the UK, Europe, USA and Australia.
I hope that you find something that you like on my site and, if not, why don't you consider a commission to get exactly what you are looking for.
I add new works to the site all of the time so make sure too check in often.
I will also be adding to my product range throughout 2020 so watch this space.
