Studio 44 in Largs is showing a joint exhibition by two Scottish art educators, Alastair Strachan and Nicola Carberry.

The images featured by Alastair – an artist and teacher – are from a series of paintings and collages inspired mostly by the views around his home. They were begun during lockdown, when focus moved entirely to the immediate environment and the small details of everyday life.

Art lecturer at Glasgow Kelvin College, Nicola Carberry says, ‘Life drawing has been part of my creative practice since I attended my first class at the age of 15 with the renowned artist Lys Hansen. Lys taught us to discover the pose from the inside out, to feel what they feel and to emphasise the character and tension in the figure. I like to layer my drawings, to place a new pose on top of a previous figure, creating a narrative.’
