Watercolour - Acropolis

Scott Kirkwood’s work as a Portrait Artist has run concurrently throughout a career as an Architect, Designer and British Army Officer.  During his extensive operational deployments to Bosnia, Kosovo, Iraq, Afghanistan and the Somali Basin, his art has developed alongside the performance of his duties, depicting an authentic perspective of the human condition in conflict afflicted regions.

Scott’s field experience in Human Intelligence has allowed him to engage and understand people across diverse environments, while the Architect’s eye has applied detail and nuance to the message he sought to convey.  Commissioned by multiple regiments throughout the British Army and NATO, he has produced limited editions of military and individual subjects which continue to sell widely.

As he leaves full time military service, expands his range of material beyond purely military subjects and embraces a broader commercial audience, Scott’s work is entering an exciting new phase.  Adopting a looser, more dynamic style of presentation, his pencil sketches now morph into detailed watercolour at points of focus in his portraits of faces, figures and architecture.

Amongst his influences are masters such as Johannes Verneer, David Roberts, John Singer Sargent, Charles Sargent Jagger MC and Sir William Russell-Flint.  Photographer Joel Pelerin and artist Rob Hefferan are also much admired.

Prior to the emergence of my current style in 1990 which I describe as “SURREAL-EXPRESSIVE”, I had a very realistic style and would draw animals and people.

I started experimenting with universal symbols and using art to express emotions in the summer of 1990. I realized that I could use my art to heal myself in a way that “talk therapy” could not. I became immersed in the creative process as memories surfaced and conflicts emerged in my art.

I noticed that I was in fact an “ARTIST'”, but was more involved in the healing process that was taking place. As a result of my personal journey, I now strongly believe in the HEALING POWER of ART. I also believe that I was meant to be an artist and that I need to create in order to be happy. I have been prolific since 1990, and find that since I have worked through a lot of my personal pain, I am now able to create new worlds and have fun with my art.

My mission now is to share my art with others in hope that it will inspire them to “get their ART out”.

Mysterious Antecedents_1

I am originally from Alexandria, Virginia. I grew up in Old Town Alexandria. I lived in the John Carlyle mansion. My grandmother was the curator. Due to being a military wife I moved around a lot. I ended up in Watertown, NY. I lived there for over 10 years. I moved a few years after my husband passed away in 2009.

This is where my story begins……

When I first started painting I literally painted all day every day for a year in my garage when I lived in Watertown, NY.  I would put six to ten canvases on the garage floor. I would paint through the wee hours of the night. I would sleep for a few hours. I would get back up and do it all over again. In the summer time I transformed my drive way and back yard into studio space.

A few years after my husband passed away I relocated to Seneca Falls, NY. Now my studio is in a barn. I have no heat. In the winter time, it can get very cold. In the summer time it gets very hot. I love painting in my barn; it is truly a wonderful place to be.

I have adopted a variety of techniques that have become a signature part of my work. I unleash these methods as needed. Many people think that drip painting or abstract painting is little more than “throwing” paint on a canvas. In reality, it is harder than it looks. In creating my paintings I allow myself to respond authentically to my materials. What transpires during the process is between the canvas and I. Lacking the need for much certainty in my life: I am inspired to create art that is risky, subversive, and edgy. Sometimes my work is suggestive or spontaneous, but it’s never uncomplicated. Uncertainty is the essential, inevitable ingredient for creating something that you never thought you could create. I do not use brushes. I use sticks or whatever I happen to find laying around my barn.

My paintings are clearly not for everyone. I do not paint for commercial appeal. I do not follow the latest trends. My pieces are unique, dynamic, and emotionally charged, which I believe are vital aspects of true works of art. My paintings are sought after, and supported, by a growing number of private clients who are emotionally moved and physically drawn to them. My art is bursting with imagination, vibrant with life and a true expression of my passion. They are living proof of who I am and what I am feeling at that moment. My paintings seize a moment in time and capture it on canvas. The canvas is the only place where I feel perfectly happy and at home. The canvas keeps me connected with someone who will live forever in my heart and soul. He is in every painting. He is in every swirl and splash of paint. For me, painting is as natural as breathing. The canvas accepts me for who I am. It accepts my shortcomings, mistakes, Scottish temper and all of my neurotic tendencies.

My paintings are shown and collected both nationally and internationally. I have a master’s degree in psychology. I have no formal training in art. What you see on the canvas comes from my imagination and pure love of painting. If you are moved by the work you see here, are interested in purchasing a particular piece or would like a studio tour, send me an email, satchwellcontemporaryartstudio@yahoo.com

I became interested in art at an early age. It was the thing I was known to be good at while at school; it made it okay to be shy, quiet and not so confident about sport or my scholastic abilities. Drawing and painting were and still are a source of comfort and satisfaction. Several years ago, I fell ill suddenly with encephalitis (an inflammation in the brain) ending up in intensive care unable to breathe for myself and with little coordination. Since then, I have relearned how to breathe, talk, eat, write etc and rejoined work and family life. Throughout all this, my painting has provided rehabilitation and an outlet for my frustrations. I become lost in a world of colour and texture and let the frustration and compromises of everyday life melt away.
I usually work in oils. I love the smell of linseed oil, the way the paint feels as it smears and the vibrant effects on the colours that glazing can produce. I always use high quality paints mainly Michael Harding or Old Holland and usually assemble and prime the canvases myself to ensure that the pictures will be a good long term investment for people. I also protect the pictures with a layer of retouching varnish to keep the colours vivid and rich.

Gill Bustamante B.A. – Artist and Art Tutor, Sussex. – I paint beautiful landscapes and life forms that promise better times and places.

I paint in oils on large canvases using thick luscious paint. The subjects are most often about Sussex fields and meadows, woodland scenes, animals and seascapes with mystical elements within them. They are affordable, expressionist, impressionist and slightly art-nouveau in style. They also tend to be attractive and multi-faceted to look at close up as well as from a distance.

I am not arty, deep, mysterious, tortured, ‘emerging’ or anything else artists are sometimes expected to be and neither am I remotely likely to get famous. I just like painting. I am inspired by music, cake and practically anything I look at. I plan to pretend I am dead at some point in order to sell more paintings.

Nicola McLean’s Beautiful Work

I am a self taught artist with a love of animals and the natural world.  Animals feature in much of my work, be they farmed, wild or companion. I do many pet portrait commissions and I aim to capture the essence and unique personality of the subject with each brushstroke. I would describe my animal art as realistic with a healthy dose of whimsy as I love to inject personality and vibrancy of colour in every painting.

As well as animals, I am inspired to paint the landscapes and seascapes of my beautiful surroundings in the far north of Scotland. The skies are massive up here where it is so very remote and they make for some spectacular sunrises, sunsets and even shows of the northern lights when the conditions are right. Nature’s own palette inspires the vibrancy and texture of my landscape work and I tend to focus on the colour and drama of the scene, endeavoring to capture the impression of a moment in time such as a sunrise or a stormy day and the effect that has on the landscape, rather than the specifics of the landscape itself.
