Painting & Drawing • Orange Route

I paint landscapes of the region on location, free from the four walls of my studio. By being in the environment I seek to capture impressions of the ever changing light of the South West of Scotland.

My Practice

My practise has changed recently, in that I now spend most of my time painting on location, au plein air. I find this allows me to capture the changing light of the landscape, creating impressions of a moment in paint. Painting in the environment provides with endless source material to work from and some challenges too!

Tools & Materials

My studio is in Solway House situated in the beautiful Crichton parkland estate. The open plan studio units provide space for a variety of artists and the building as a whole is filled with all kinds of creatives. For me my studio is a separate place away from distractions, a place where I can focus in my creative practise. I can sketch out new ideas, work on paintings in progress, or reflect and plan out forthcoming projects there. On a practical level the studio holds my materials I need from the initial stretching a canvas to the framing a completed a painting.
