Artist - Ian Darling

Available in the Gallery

The inspiration for my work comes from a range of locations, both in Scotland and further afield, predominantly the Western Isles but basically anywhere which boasts remote Landscapes.
All have one thing in common however and that is, wide open spaces, big skies & coastal or rural isolation.
I work predominantly in Acrylics and like to use large blocks of colour to create a mood within the paintings and then adding some detail, for example, a lighthouse or a croft in order to draw the viewer into the painting and hopefully instigate a sense of enquiry and reflection about the scene.
