He painted many local seascapes and landscapes as well a charcoal portraits of local people. He formed and trained a local rifle volunteer group at the time of the First World War. He was an imposing man who would regularly be seen sketching on street corners.
Hewett provided an invaluable record of rural life and topography in West Buckland, Bantham and Thurlestone.  His watercolours display good draughtsmanship an unusual soft, tonal quality.
