The featured artist for May at Larks Gallery in Ballater in Aberdeenshire is Dot Walker. Based at WASPS Studios in Inverness, Dot spends much of her time exploring the Highlands on foot, bike, car or kayak, armed with a sketchbook and charcoal in search of drawing opportunities en plein air, and although many sketches are discarded, some go on to be the springboard for larger paintings in her studio. Sometimes she might complete the work outdoors, affording the work a spontaneity that can be lacking in studio works. As with many landscape painters, the surrounding atmosphere, weather conditions, and transformational light are her main areas of interest. Since her first solo display in 2008, she has featured in many well-received exhibitions in galleries across theUK.
