Farm Track - Embo
“ My paintings are a personal response to my environment, in terms of colour, light and space, and reflect my time at Glasgow School of Art in the 1960s, when drawing skills were still considered an important element of our coursework and painting was in the Scottish Tradition of alla prima oil painting - part of the legacy of the Glasgow Boys and Scottish Colourists.
Over the years I have developed my love of colour which is expressed mainly through the medium of oil paint, and largely in still life compositions. I also enjoy sketching outdoors and in the studio, as well as life drawing and other classes when I can."
