NaismithArt's Profile Picture
Scott Naismith
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United Kingdom
With the ambition to become an artist, Scott studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee. In June 2000 he left with a BDes in Illustration and printmaking.

Since graduating Scott has been a full time artist, working from his studio in Glasgow. Much of his time is spent traveling around the country looking for inspiration for another take on the Scottish landscape. The many lochs, glens and isles of the West coast are amongst his favourite subject matter for his vibrant and atmospheric oils. Since 2003 Scott has also been a regular part time lecturer at the Creative Arts Department of Reid Kerr College, Paisley.

Scott uses vivid colours in a vigorous application to represent the fast changing light conditions of the West coast of Scotland. Colour use often becomes an entirely emotional response to the subject while tone can remain representational.

The love he has for his native Scottish countryside is portayed in his work through an ebullient energy with which he handles the colour with pallette knife and brush.

Haapy New Year to all!
Going to be updating my deviant art page more this year as a New Year's resolution! In the mean time I thought I'd use this nice youtube journal skin to show off my newest you tube video. Part 2 is available on my channel.

Big thanks to all new watchers who have joined in after a 3rd Daily Deviation feature I had in November seemed to catch some attention. Really delighted to get a DD for my painting 'Consonance and Dissonance'.

Lots more to come for 2014.
