“I have been interested in art and painting all my life. I am an Occupational Therapist by profession, but also took time out to complete an Art History degree at Aberdeen University in my early fifties.
It is only in recent years I have been working in watercolour. I was inspired by local and professional artist Doreen Bothwell. Through her classes I have learned to love this unpredictable medium, embracing it’s qualities to create colourful and spontaneous works. I also enjoy using salt and other techniques to enhance texture.
I paint for relaxation and prefer a loose intuitive style where colour choice comes first and the subject later! The image often emerges naturally from the behaviour of the paint. During lockdown, fellow artists and I have inspired and supported each other online by challenges such as painting a chosen subject together. This has taken us out of our comfort zones and resulted in a wonderful array of differing interpretations and styles some of which are in this exhibition.”
Lorna’s video shows the creation of ‘Afternoon Stroll’ – a little artwork the size of a postcard. She comments:
“There are parts of this little painting I would change if I could, but the freshness of spontaneous works is often their charm.”
You can purchase ‘Afternoon Stroll‘ from the gallery below.
Be creative too!
Using the video above, why not have a go creating your own artwork! If you feel it has come out well, you could send it as a postcard to a friend, turn it into a birthday card or, if there’s only a small part of it you like, trim it and use as a gift tag!

Work for sale
A note from the artist: all prices include postage and packing. The painting and mount sizes are approximate; some mounts cover a small area around the painting. Mounts and frames are locally purchased and so it would be possible for purchaser to reframe at minimal cost if the colour of frame is not suitable. There are a few paintings awaiting their mounts and unfortunately, due to the current lockdown, these are delayed. These pieces will be sent out as soon as possible.
