Jan Palmer

There are two strands to my recent artwork. My paintings are mainly full of the strong bright colours of the East Neuk buildings, harbours and boat whilst my black and white pencil drawings concentrate on the details of local scenes and buildings.

I work in a variety of media – oils, acrylics and gouache and mixed media. I also enjoy pencil drawing. I take inspiration from the area in which I live. The old harbours and buildings provide very colourful subjects. I also paint flowers from my gardens and from some of the lovely gardens around Scotland. My oil, acrylic and gouache paintings tend to be fairly representational although I like to paint large flowers and use warm, bright colours. I like to experiment with a variety of media, for instance, mixtures of ink and acrylics or oil pastels and acrylic. In some paintings I like to use a scraffiti technique.
