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.

    Fabulous work Scott. It immediately caught my eye amongst the thumbnails and I was having a little wonder whose work it was! Should have known it was yours!!! Great composition, great colours, great everything.
