Neil Robertson

Conwy Castle, Blue

The creator of the website Welshpaintings, Robertson works in Snowdonia producing mainly watercolour landscapes of subtle beauty. He is taken with the effects of light on the land/sky interface and often paints looking into the sun when the whole scene is unified by a common recurrence of a particular hue, often a warm grey or cooler blue-grey. His pictures are infused with a certain transient quality emphasised by layer on layer of transparent colour, reflecting the ephemeral nature of the light-effects he paints. He also works in oil and acrylic using a bolder approach and more expressive brushwork.
