Scott McFarlane

My studio is outside. I enjoy spending time observing closely the variety of elements within my locality and bringing together, textures, patterns and colours into mixed-media paintings.

About My Practice

I begin outside. Observing closely until I find an element which excites me. I then sketch patterns and textures, return to my indoor studio and interpret my observations into an image. I do not use photographs as I find this imposes limits in my work. I prefer the freedom of exploring elements and letting patterns and colour find their voice and dominate the outcome. I often have a number of pieces evolving at the same time.

Tools & Materials

Inks, water colour paints, pencil, soluble graphite, pastels, oil pastels…occasional oils and seawater.
