Oil Painting Inspiration: Scottish Florals




I'm loving the fresh and gorgeous, almost-primitive florals of these two Scottish painters:
Alison McWhirter (above) and Mhairi McGregor (below).

Scottish artists bring to mind Alexander McCall Smith's Isabel Dalhousie series, a series you too might enjoy Anna.They are set in modern-day Edinburgh, Isabel is first a philosopher, then something of a conundrum solver and a fan of the arts of Scotland.

Rose, I'll look for them. I've had McCall Smith recommended many times, for the African detective novels.

McCall Smith is very prolific but also a quality writer. I'm not a fan of The Ladies Detective Agency series (the African ones), but I enjoy the Isabel Dalhousie series very much and quite like the Scotland Street series. He worked as a professor of medical law for many years so he brings an interesting and informed background to his writing.

To be honest the best things is that there are really goo artist, who are able to make one amazing final product just from a photo. And for me that is more than enough to respect the artist as a whole.
I have seen painters make the painting better than the photo itself. Even http://www.clickprintpaint.co.uk/ and OIR Artists talked about that.
