Scottish Field – Spring Fling event gives artists a sense of Place

Kenny Smith 13.04.2018… read article

excerpt: Catherine Coulson, of Rockcliffe, added: ‘As a landscape artist and naturalist, inspired by nature and wilderness, my work focuses on place, looking beyond the aesthetic or geographic idea of location, into the depths of what makes an environment. Orchard Mist shows the land behind my home; an old orchard on the edge of the wood, surrounded by lowland heath, above an underground stream running from the loch. This was early morning when I went to retrieve a bat detector, thick with mist and glowing with pale blue light.’
