Artist - Derek Reid

Available in the Gallery

I studied at Edinburgh College of Art gaining a BA Honours degree and a diploma in Postgraduate studies.
As with most realist painters I aim to create a sharp naturalistic image however composition and design are as important to me as artistic rendering.
Photography is an integral part of my working practice- when I look through the viewfinder of my camera I’m visualising paintings rather than photographs.
My inspiration is mostly drawn from industrial, architectural and structural subject matter.
