2024 EJ Hughes Calendar


The 2024 E.J. Hughes Calendar is a collection of 12 watercolours that were painted between the years of 1939 and 1997.  Hughes worked with watercolours throughout his life, but in the latter part of his life, he switched exclusively to this medium when he could no longer stand for long stretches of time.

“Watercolours are a good test in getting things right the first time,” Hughes wrote to his sister Zoe on March 5, 1974, “as changes can only be made in darker and duller direction, and as you probably know from experience, in order to change a transparent watercolour in a paler and brighter direction, an artist faces a near impossibility, resulting usually in fuzzy edges.” (excerpt from “E.J. Hughes Paints Vancouver Island, by Robert Amos, p. 37)

All images are copyright of the E.J. Hughes Estate, with several images graciously provided by Robert and Sarah Amos.
