Artist Brian Scott will be featuring garden paintings for his Mother’s Day showing at Filberg Lodge.
Scott prefers to work in oils rather than acrylics for his garden paintings ,emphasizing textures in the garden as well colour.
For colourists, gardens such as the Old House, Filberg Lodge and Butchart Gardens are ideal to unleash a full spectrum. Scott always pushes towards his signature colours – the primaries and secondaries orange/green/purple. These triads when orchestrated reach the frenzy that Scott is after.
Scott’s mother recently passed away and the artist will be displaying a large abstract, Mother and Child. The painting illustrates the warm energy radiating from the mother bonded to the child.
Without Dorothy Scott’s influence the artist would not be where he is today. The show runs Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Filberg Lodge and Park.
