"After Strom" by Scott Hewett
"After Strom" by Scott Hewett
Scott Hewett was born in Bradford, Massachusetts, a small town near the New Hampshire border. There, he attended Haverhill High school. Under the instruction of Susan Paradis, art teacher and childrens book illustrator, he received several art awards and realized that art would be his life-long passion. While attending Massachusetts College of Art, he won several awards including the Tom OHara Award for Illustration. He received a BFA, with honors in 1988.

Through the next decade, Scott honed his passion to paint to interpret the world around him on canvas. In 1998, he moved to Sag Harbor, New York, to immerse himself in the scenes and subject matter he loves best. For him, the eastern end of Long Island offers an incredible variety of subject matter. Scott has embraced the area from the farms, to the wooded areas, to the coast and the harbors, the lifestyle and especially the unique Long Island light and renders his subjects into vividly colorful paintings. Scott may paint a still-life or a local landscape with a rusted old truck, but will experiment as he pushes the boundaries making the ordinary into art. His paintings are more often landscapes of quiet places where the natural and human worlds intertwine, noted J. D. Samuelson, an art critic for The East Hampton Star.

Canvas Printing

Printing on canvas is incredibly versatile and a great way to create a ready-to-hang image or artwork. Every canvas that we print  is protected with a UV coated acrylic finish to guard the print from dust, moisture and fading. Do you want your canvas stretched on bars or non-stretched? Framed or unframed? Customize the work to make it truly your own.

Art of Photography

Art of PhotographyPhotography is an amazing art form. A photograph album is a catalogue of life's history as seen through the camera. People, animals, nature, holidays, celebrations and even disasters are captured instantly and recorded as part of history. It is through the powerful presentations of photography that we better understand the progression of time and life. Hampton Photo Arts has over twenty years of experience working with photographers as they seek to capture and preserve the history of families and communities.

When families get together, both children and adults love to look through photograph albums. They enjoy seeing the childhood photos of older family members and compare themselves to ancestors who lived a hundred or more years ago. Photos are among the most important treasures of every family. They should not be faded and dull. They contain the smiles, tears and emotions of generations. The staff members at Hampton Photo Arts display excellence in the art of photography reproduction. They work with the highest quality materials. They know how to create family memories that will be just as beautiful one hundred years from now as they are today.

Learning to Paint Watercolors

Watercolor is an easy, fun medium for creating art.  Color theory, composition and design can be explored freely with watercolor paint, paper, and brushes.  Several techniques may be used with watercolors for varying effects including painting wet on wet, wet on dry, layering washes, and more.

Watercolor paper comes in cold press, hot press, and rough.  Rough paper has the most texture, and its hills and valleys can result in interesting effects when paint is added.  Hot press is the smoothest and has the finest texture.  Cold press has a moderate amount of texture and is the paper most commonly chosen by watercolor artists.

Watercolor paper comes in several weights ranging from 90 lb. to 300 lb. based on the pounds per ream of paper.  Most artists prefer to use at least 140 lb. paper.  Papers vary somewhat between manufacturers, so sampling different papers is advisable.  Paper can be purchased in pads, in blocks or in large sheets.  The large sheets are usually the most economical and can be torn into whatever size is desired.
