Most of my works are based on my experiences while out walking in the Scottish hills. Being visually impaired I see very little detail and experience the landscape in terms of pattern. I see the changing light and shade, the bright colours, the larger features and of course experience the ever changing conditions from minute to minute, hour to hour and season to season.
The paintings are created using acrylic paint and oil pastel; a way of working that helps me to depict the subtle textures, lines and colours I experience on my walks. My work tries to capture a little of what it’s like to wander in this wild and stunning landscape.
Winner of the Jolomo Award 2009 for Scottish landscape painting, I now work professionally from my studio on Irvine Harbourside in Ayrshire.Keith Salmon
