Dot is based at WASPS studios in Inverness and has been a regular visitor to the western isles and especially Harris for many years. She is thrilled to be able to go ahead with this first Harris exhibition here in Talla na Mara. Like most people she is drawn by the spectacle of the big west coast beaches with their white sands and turquoise waters, but equally loves to paint on the bays of the east side with its rugged landscape and beautiful decaying croft houses which seem to sink back into the land and draw the mind back to a simpler, and no doubt harsher way of life.
She generally paints en plain air (weather permitting!) or makes quick sketches on the spot which are later developed in the studio. She is more interested in atmosphere and feelings evoked by any particular place and time than in achieving accuracy within her paintings. All the work in this exhibition is oil on canvas.
She would welcome feedback or enquires by email at studiodotwalker.co.uk.
