My Story - me and my painting

 

When it all began

I have always loved drawing & painting and when doing higher art at school experimented with both water and oil paints and batik printing. I continued using oils until I had young children and found it difficult to leave paintings lying around to dry with small hands everywhere. Eventually I moved onto pencils as a medium and did a lot of sketching of animals and wild flowers. Over 10 years ago, my son gave me a set of acrylic paints and I have never looked back.

 

Inspiration

Having been a photographer for many years, I have used my own photographs as a basis for my paintings, loving the colours of the hills & waterways and dramatic skies, mainly of the Borders, but also further afield in Scotland. I find the colours easy to capture with acrylic paints, which when varnished, take on a glorious depth of colour.

 

Auld Borders

I also like to use old black & white postcards and photographs from as far back as the late 1800s and recreate the scene in colour. This takes some research needing photos of the present day view to get any remaining buildings the same colour of stone work.

 

A New Challenge

Since the return of The Waverley line was imminent, I started painting steam trains in the Borders, again from old B&W photographs which have proved extremely popular. The research needed with these is to use the BR database to get the correct livery for the engine at the time the photograph is from – the colours of engines often changed many times throughout their working life.

 

I occasionally paint animals for a change - horses, birds and dogs (even a fox) being my forte but always seem to revert back to the old scenes and contemporary Border landscapes.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my paintings as much as I have enjoyed painting them.
