It is twenty-five years since I first exhibited work with the Rendezvous Gallery. Many
things come and go, especially so in the Art world, however all at 100 Forest Avenue
has remained constant.
Living on the Black Isle is similar, changing with each passing season yet every year
This small tract of land sandwiched between the Cromarty and Moray Firths has proved
to be a very fertile source of inspiration.
Anthony trained at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee in the early ‘60s
under the celebrated academicians Alberto Morrocco, David Mclure and James Mackintosh
Patrick. A further year was spent obtaining a teaching qualification. After teaching for
31 years in Tayside, Anthony took early retirement and returned to painting full-time.
A lover of outdoor pursuits, Anthony has taken the Scottish landscape as his source of
inspiration, working mainly in oils. The artist prefers to work ‘alla prima’, I.E. ‘in one
go’, directly from the subject regardless of the weather. He feels that the only sure
way of capturing the mood of the subject, while cre-ating a feeling of spontaneity
in the work, is to be in the environment itself. His favourite location is the Scottish
west coast, especially the western isles, and he often travels to places of particular
interest by kayak or bicycle.
Having exhibited extensively throughout Scotland and in London, his works are found
in private collections in the U.S.A., Canada, Australia and Europe.
