Perth-based artist Ian McLachlan Scott returns to Moray Art Centre with another exciting exhibition ‘Coast and Country’
Ian McLachlan Scott: “The paintings in the exhibition are responses to two locales, the Isle of Bute where I have been painting for over forty years and my current home in Perthshire Colenden which is set woods and fields bordering the river Tay.
I work almost exclusively out of doors all year round.
Bute in the Firth of Clyde on its West coast has open vistas of Arran and Kintyre wide bays and secluded shores.
Colenden by comparison is somewhat more enclosed screened by woods and hedges and has a more intimate feel.
The paintings are of two types – a general view of what I`m looking at – or- a close up of some aspect that takes my attention.
I work in acrylics on board and watercolour as a rule.
Colour and mood are important to me and always what the weather is saying.”
