Tidal Stripes to Rorys Tiger and more

ingridNilssonMugs

I am delighted to share these with you today, and I hope you like them too. Wonderful gift mugs from artist Ingrid Nilsson.

Ingrid is based in Edinburgh, she grew up in London, but her childhood travels to Scotland paved the way for her move there in the mid nineties.

She has been exhibiting locally, and in England for the last 15 years.

In 2011 Ingrid and partner Stuart opened Gallery-Cafe ‘Bon Papillon’ in the heart of Edinburgh’s ‘art quarter’. From here Ingrid paints and Stuart runs his framing workshop.

I can highly recommend the coffee and scones !

Bob Lees Artist Spotlight

Bob studied at Glasgow School of Art and graduated in 1959. After completing National Service in RAF in Singapore, he qualified as a teacher of art in Glasgow.

Throughout his teaching life he has always painted, being of the belief that an art teacher should also be a practising artist. Now retired from the post of Principal Teacher of Art at Craigmount High School in Edinburgh, he can devote more time and energy to painting.

Together with his wife Val (a stained glass artist and teacher) they have renovated various properties in Edinburgh, Arran and the Borders. They have three grown up daughters also in the art world. Bob paints mostly in acrylics and depicts the many different moods of the Scottish landscape.

Bob Lees has had solo exhibitions in Edinburgh and Arran, and exhibited in other galleries (one of his paintings was presented to the late Princess Diana on an official visit to Arran). His work hangs in various private collections in the UK, Europe, Russia and the United States. Bob and Val live in Edinburgh but spend much of their time in their converted church in Corrie on the Isle of Arran.

James Somerville Lindsay | Artist Spotlight

James was born in Scone, Perthshire in 1954 grew up in Lanark in the Clyde Valley and studied at Glasgow School of Art , under the tutelage of the late John Cunningham. Despite the many fine art influences at GSA , he chose a career in advertising and design and enjoyed many creative highs during a 26 year career in the industry.

However, since his decision to seek a more personal form of self-expression and fulfillment, nothing compares to the joys of paint on canvas. At every opportunity, he endeavours to capture his chosen subject ‘plein air’, be it in the peaceful hills of a greek island, the light and colour of southern France or here at home in coastal village or city square. The fun and banter when the idyll is interrupted by the inquisitive passer-by, simply adds to the pleasure.

James Somverville Lindsay - Watch_the_World_Go_By

Since deciding to paint full-time in 2009, he has established a studio and framing workshop in an outbuilding adjoining his home in Lanark, and a base near Béziers in the Languedoc in the south of France.

His painting is now split between the UK and his gypsy-like travels abroad. In France, working from an old camper van affectionately nicknamed Claude ( after Monet, his favourite artist ) he is inspired by the light and colour of the region , often capturing his subject in one outdoor session.

NEW! Canvas Art

Peter McDermott Art on Canvas – Wow! Can you tell I’m excited to share our new eye-catching choice of art ? Colourful, bold, iconic – canvas art printed on artist-grade cotton canvas – I love them, they look clean and modern and are an ideal lightweight alternative to framed art.

I say this, and it’s only my opinion because, I’ve recently had to deal with lath and plaster covered walls vs good old bricks and mortar. Trying to find a good patch of wall for my fixing says more about the age of the building than my DIY skills, but I shouldn’t grumble. Oh, and another reason I like the canvas art so much is that it’s ready to hang straight out of the box !

The canvas art is sealed with a UV-coating to protect and preserve the image while eliminating glare, and is available in two finishes.

  • Canvas Wrap
  • Canvas Float

The Canvas Wrap is basically as it sounds – the canvas is formed/wrapped around a real wood frame, and means you can see the image around the sides of the frame.

The Canvas Float is block mounted on board and framed in either a white or black frame to create the “float” effect.

Please Note:
Canvas Wrap and Canvas Float options are only available for Peter McDermott Art

Well-traveled Art

There has been a flurry of art out the Bay Attic doors lately, and I must admit I do find it quite exciting. Being a solely web-based company, it makes me realise how technology has made the word smaller. It’s fantastic to see our Scottish art going to the USA, Germany , France, and Australia. Lovely prints from Jolomo, Bridgland, and Philp to Central Scotland, and a Lochhead finding a new home across the river. Near or far, our artist work is appreciated on a global scale. I wonder how well-traveled our next piece of art will be ?
