Railway art by Mark Langley

A full time artist since 2009, Mark studied Graphic Design, Illustration and Photography at Sheffield and then worked as a Graphic Artist.
Detailed pencil drawing was Mark's first artistic passion, and realism has been an ongoing obsession since the age of 13. Mark produced a series of highly detailed photorealistic railway drawings by the time he left school to study graphic design. Since 2001 Mark has built a reputation as an animal and architectural artist with over half his work being to commission. The railway subject matter has remained as an interest throughout which he returns to when the opportunity arises.
Mark is self published he sells originals and prints of his work at art fairs, shows, through galleries and outlets. He has won a number of awards, for work in both colour pencil and watercolour. His work has been featured in a number of magazines as well as in the book "Artists Drawing Techniques" published by Dorling Kindersley. Mark's drawing 'Newcomer' which depicts Tornado in undercoat at the Great Central Railway's Loughborough Station, was selected to be exhibited at the Menier Gallery in London as part of the UK Coloured Pencil Society's annual exhibition in 2016.
