Clearing Mist is an original landscape painting by Scottish artist, Scott Naismith. This mixed media painting including oil, acrylic and spray paint on a linen canvas features a vibrant and colourful depiction of an abstracted version of the Scottish Landscape. The painting involves an impasto style which gives the work more texture, allowing the landscape to come to life and the light of the sun shine through the painting.
Scott uses vivid colours in a vigorous application to represent the fast changing light conditions of the West coast of Scotland. Colour use often becomes an entirely emotional response to the subject while values can remain representational. The love he has for his native Scottish countryside is portrayed in his work through an ebullient energy with which he handles the colour with palette knife and brush.
Scott’s recent work concentrates on transitional skies and the many colours involved when light breaks through cloud. These changing skies from dark to light are a metaphor for optimism and hope. After a miraculous recovery from cancer by his father, recent marriage and birth of his 2 children, Scott draws upon a great positivity and energy.
