  • Wildlife Paintings by Lucy Newton

    Lucy Newton draws her inspiration from the richness of wildlife in Scotland.  She aims to share her sense of wonder at the natural world around us, even in our own backyard. Lucy works primarily in watercolour, often combined with other media such as charcoal, ink or acrylic, to suit her particular subject.  She finds working from life essential to her practice, and this shows in the vividness of her work.

    On show daily from Saturday 17 November until Wednesday 16 January 2019 (except for 25-26 December and 1 January), from 10am - 4pm. Entry is free.
