Wildlife Paintings By Lucy Newton

17 NOV 18 - 16 JAN 19

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.

A love of nature has been a constant in Lucy’s life. After completing a degree at Edinburgh College of Art, she spent some time working as an illustrator, for the Sunday Herald in particular.  She now works primarily as a freelance artist, based in Edinburgh, happy to combine her passion for art with her love of nature.

The exhibition runs from Saturday 17 November until Wednesday 16 January 2019. We're open daily from 10am to 4pm (except for 25-26 December and 1 January), and entry is free. 


SOC brings together like-minded individuals with a passion for birds, nature and conservation through a programme of talks, outings, conferences and via the Club’s quarterly journal, Scottish Birds.
