John Robert Smith & Lynsay Hay: Perthshire Summers at Artisan& in Aberfeldy features two local artists whose depictions of landscapes capture Perthshire in all its glory, with the River Tay a favourite subject. Lynsay Hay’s bright, even neon work epitomises Perthshire sunsets at this time of the year. Dark sky over there and Afterglow are beautiful examples of her use of colour, while her riverbank scenes embody calm waters with their heathers and blues. John Robert Smith’s post-lockdown Hugs Collection uses red backgrounds to ‘lift’ the work, while his studies of the Tay tend towards a more subtle palette of greens, heathers and forest tones. Recent works merge both approaches.
