Edinburgh’s Torrance Gallery is showing work by Lynn Rodgie, who creates vibrant and expressive landscapes, city scenes and floral studies. Working mainly from photographs, she uses mainly water-based oils for their versatility in capturing the interplay of light and shadow, explaining, ‘Photographs enable me to capture the pattern, shapes and composition of a particular painting and I can enhance the colours and vigour of the scene when I am back in the studio.’

A graduate of Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen, Lynn grew up in a creative environment with an artist father and was later influenced by leading Scottish artists such as James Fullerton, John Bellany and Lin Pattulo. She also has a background in graphic design, which shows in her paintings, many of which are stylised rather than fully representational.

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