Neil MacPherson RSA RGI RSW
I live and work in the Far north of Scotland. I prefer to paint in the daylight which makes the seasons very important in my work. Summer brings 15 hours of working light, a slower pace of painting reflecting the long days, whereas winter with 5 hours of cold light brings short intense days of work.
The mix of ideas comes from reading, history, Gaelic song/verse, Norse legends, myths of the north, marks on the land of forgotten lives, love, loss, walking, looking, changing colours of the landscape.
In the paintings I am creating things that could have been and should have been.
