Artists & Illustrators Portfolio Plus Summer Gallery 2020


Artists & Illustrators is one of the UK's leading magazines for original art. Their Portfolio Plus forum creates an online community for artists to display artwork professionally and in a visually compelling way.

I am delighted that my pastel painting, The Loch Glistens, has been chosen to appear in the Portfolio Plus Editor's Pick Gallery for their Summer 2020 Competition. In this large pastel painting I focussed on blocks of colour to create an effective image that plays principally on the relationships of light and dark.

The view is of Loch Ard, one of Scotland's smaller lochs, but also recognised as being one of the most picturesque. It lies close to the village of Aberfoyle and Loch Lomond (as well as my mother's house!)
