JOHN WETTEN BROWN is a restoration architect who who now works as an artist. From restoring Scotland’s ancient monuments he is now painting some of Scotland’s most interesting treasures. His subjects range from historic fishing villages like Crail and Pittenweem, to the landscapes of Skye, Mull and Sutherland with great sweeps of mountain, moorland, sky and sheep. The human impact on landscape is always evident.
He has developed a distinctive style of paintings using strong colour and bold form. His paintings are “perspectively challenged”. He suggests this may be a reaction against drawing straight lines on a drawing board … judge for yourself.
