    Sea Dance is a contemporary acrylic painting on board by Mary Scott.

    It is inspired by those days on the Cornish coast when the showers have been rolling in – one minute it looks like it will rain for ever, then so quickly it clears. As the sun comes out, the sky opens up and the light plays on the wet sand and rocks.

    Recalling memory, experience and emotion of special places, captured and imprinted on my mind, is very important to me when I paint. In the last few years, I have been particularly inspired by the energy of the wild cliffs and coves of the north coast of Cornwall, and return there regularly, always coming away refreshed and invigorated by its dramatic beauty.

    I have had a lifelong love of being immersed in ancient landscapes and wild places, enhanced by reading earth sciences at university. My approach to painting is largely intuitive. I may start out with a sense of direction, but then investigate colour, shape and textural mark-making in an open and exploratory way, building thicker and thinner layers of paint and glazes, before scraping back to discover what lies beneath. This process of revealing glimpses, half-hidden things and curious marks develops contrasts between the ancient permanence of rock formations, landscapes developing through time, and the present and future possibilities of the elements above.

    Based in Shipton-under-Wychwood in the Cotswolds, I visit Cornwall as often as I can. In 2020-21, I am excited to be heading regularly to St Ives where I will be taking part in the year-long mentored Porthmeor Programme at the School of Painting.
