Debbie Scott


I’m still figuring out what kind of artist I am… definitely  an oil painter… currently exploring impressionistic treescapes with vibrant colours… I also love portraiture and try to paint a person every week with the ‘Christchurch Portrait Group’ to develop my style.

My plan this year is to get out plein air painting on the weekends, and watch loads of youtube painting demos to inspire and instruct me – I love living in an era where I can find online demos from artists around the world whose work inspires me.

So, depending on how the wind blows (in the creative mood of my mind), I will do more; floral work; still life; life drawing; definitely loads of landscapes and portraits. As long as in the end they look like paintings and not photos, then I will be making progress towards becoming the kind of painter I think I want to be!
