A new exhibition at Sproson Gallery in St Andrews features four artists working in different styles, but all inspired by nature.

For inspiration for her vibrant, boldly textured oil paintings Sheila Fowler, whose work is pictured, is particularly drawn to the Hebridean Islands, where she photographs turquoise seas, rocky coastlines, machair and little cottages, capturing their essence and atmosphere back in her studio. 

Penelope Anstice uses mainly oil, but also watercolour and gouache, often creating large paintings from sketches with brushes, palette knives and her hands, working fast across the canvas to capture a fleeting moment.

Philip Raskin uses the texture of the paint and the shape of the brushwork to give his landscapes a luminous quality, his trademark soft palette capturing the textures, moods and magically changing light of his native Scotland.

Carina Prigmore spends a lot of time walking and being in nature, basing her paintings on memories or feelings of a place, as she uses layering techniques and bold mark-making to create atmosphere and mood.

The gallery supports the Own Art finance scheme, which makes purchasing artworks more affordable through payment by instalments.
