David Hall McKewan was a pupil of David Cox. He exhibited between 1836 and 1873 at the Royal Academy, the British Institution, the Society of British Artists and the New Watercolour Society, of which he became a member in 1848. From 1836, he lived at addresses in the Newington area of south east London. However, sometime before 1867 he moved to Oakfield House in Belsize Park, north London. He mainly produced views of Kent, Wales, Scotland and Ireland, including several studies of trees and woods in brown wash. In 1859, he published a manual on watercolour painting, titled ‘Lessons on Trees’. Shortly after McKewan’s death in 1873, some 20 examples of his work were shown in the Winter Exhibition of the Institute of Painters in Watercolours.
