I frst became aware of the Scottish Colourists when I was a student. I marvelled at the Cadell portraits and the Peploe Still life and Iona landscapes. Hunter and Fergusson came along a little later, and it was the bold expressive Hunter Still life paintings, that drew me back to Kelvingrove again and again. So, here are the ‘Footsteps’. A light-hearted look (or interpretation) – seen through the eyes of a painter working almost 100 years later.
These pictures featured in the successful Richmond Hill Gallery Summer Show (2009).
Working in watercolour and oil often on a large scale, sumptuous still lifes and sun drenched Mediterranean views are achieved through her skill as a technician of colour.
These art works are taken from previous exhibitions which include marble-fronted Italian churches, the beauty of Siena and Dubrovnic, the coastline of Croatia, and works from Scotland.
