John Wetten Brown - Artist

John Wetten Brown popped into the gallery recently to deliver some new work for the summer exhibition.
John has had a life long interest in drawing and painting and has followed his love of Scottish landscape and architecture seeing them with informed and fresh eyes. Here is a broad spectrum of subjects, from wild mountain scenery to quaint fishing harbours, and, from the the title of a recent solo exhibition, 'From Crow Steps to Highland Coos'.
The style of the paintings is bright and perspectively challenged. This may be a reaction against drawing straight lines on a drawing board, judge for yourself. This image is typical of the artist's highly personal style of painting scenes of his native land.
