This Glasgow- based artist takes an inspiration from surrounding him Scottish landscapes. His paintings are interpretation of the skies, land, and sea before him as beautiful streaks of color. To create those multi-layered melody of color that expressed his love his native countryside, he is using multi-sized brushes and various palette knives. Those multiple tools allows him to create texture and visual effect.
As he explain colors that are often present in his work re artistic renditions of light peeking through the clouds : “After 10 years of paying the scottish landscapes, my recent work now becomes more involved with cloudcover and its effect on light and colour through both its translucent and opaque properties. Clouds are visible masses of water droplets or frozen ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere . They have the ability to refract and reflect, creating an ever changing perception of light which inspires my use of colour.”
