Artist-in-residence at Broughton House, Kirkcudbright, freelance painter Ewan McClure is enjoying a steady demand for his rapidly-executed realist portraiture since his appearance in 2013 on Sky Arts as a finalist in Portrait Artist of the Year. He was selected as a finalist in the BP Portrait Award 2013, and in 2015 was shortlisted for the Royal Society of Portrait Painters’ prestigious Conversations Prize. As well as his portraits, he practises observational still-life and landscape painting, his work described by Guy Peploe as ‘…bravura performances, they arrest and beguile…’.
Some works are available to purchase, alongside those on loan from private collections. Admission is free, by ticket via the Galleries’ website.
