Acrylic on linen, 101x76cm
Although born in North Yorkshire and educated at St John's in York, specializing in oil painting, Mark McCallum is now based in Perthshire Scotland.
Living in the Highlands since 2004 has given him the opportunity to fully explore the outstanding and breathtaking landscape that Scotland has to offer.
His paintings reflect the ever-changing mood of remote locations, dramatic skies and vast beaches, as well as the colourful mountain flora and geography.
Approaching the work with a bold palette, an impressionistic style and semi-abstract representation, and by incorporating mixed media and found materials from the local areas depicted, Mark achieves a sense of authenticity and belonging, allowing the viewer to breathe and immerse in the landscape.
He has since been widely exhibited in the UK and has many international sales.
