A Suffolk artist whose attention to fine detail has earned him the title of “bricklayer” is exhibiting a selection of his most recent work – mainly depicting well known county scenes.
Tom Ambridge’s watercolour paintings feature notable Suffolk landmarks including the Tide Mill, Shire Hall and Seckford Almshouses in Woodbridge, as well as Aldeburgh’s Moot Hall, Southwold’s lighthouse and Willy Lott’s Cottage in Flatford.
The work, which also includes a variety of abstract designs created using computer software, is on display at Woodbridge Library all this month.
Having enjoyed drawing as a youngster, Mr Ambridge said he returned to art as a retirement hobby with Woodbridge Art Club.
Although his more recent works are watercolours, he has also explored other media including monochrome portraits inspired by the pencil painting technique of fellow club member Rosario Zinna.

His former occupation as an engineer and scientist is said to have influenced his approach, which has generally involved incorporating fine detail, earning him a reputation at the club as “the bricklayer”.
