Scott Naismith: Scottish Landscape by 


The Highlands and Islands of Scotland are depicted in Scott’s atmospheric and vibrant oils.
JAN: The Plane to Barra lands on the beach just beyond this croft.
FEB: This Sky study focuses on the effects of afterglow at sunset across the Western isles.
MAR: Crinan, Postcard picturesque harbour town located at the end of the Crinan Canal. My wife and I stayed at the Crinan Hotel owned by Scottish landscape artist Frances MacDonald.
APR: Looking West in the evening, cloud cover can become backlit and play tricks with perceived colour.
MAY: This place on the East coast of Barra allowed me a great opportunity to play with cool/warm colour contrasts and design-led mark making.
JUN: This loch (in the shape of the map of Scotland) I’ve painted many times. I pass it on trips to Skye and it looks different every time.
JUL: Sometimes what you want to say with colour can be restricted by reality for a representational painter… not here. This accurately depicts a recognisable landscape on Barra, while utilising many abstract elements.
AUG: When the horizon becomes unbroken all attention is focused on the forces of nature.
SEPT: The backlit effects of views out to sea from the West coast are in this case painted from memory.
OCT: Near the causeway from Barra (left) to Vatersay (right) this study captures a moment when the sun breaks out to strike the gulf stream waters which light up against the dark sky ahead.
NOV: Sometimes a literal depiction of a scene is the best way to highlight a postcard picturesque spot like this.
DEC: This describes the quality of evening light across the broken West Coast using contrasting translucent and opaque paint application.

Duncan of Jordanstone graduate in illustration and printmaking 2000.

After 10 years of painting the Scottish landscape, my recent work becomes more involved with cloudcover and its effect on light and colour through both its translucent and opaque properties. Clouds have the ability to refract and reflect, creating an ever changing perception of light which inspires my use of colour.
