Chris spent his early years in Africa and on returning to Aberdeen attended Robert Gordon’s School. On leaving school Chris spent two years at Aberdeen College of Commerce studying graphic design. He then went to Grays School of Art and studied sculpture and fine art for four years. He has worked as a professional artist since 1983.
Chris is a keen fisherman and outdoor sportsman and brings this passion to his art. He specialises in the area of field sports and game fishing – in particular salmon fishing. His very impressive attention to detail, factual representation and fine workmanship is based on his keen personal interest in all of that which he paints. His paintings capture a fleeting moment in nature, the stag on the hill, the salmon in the pool, the bird on the wing and all of the landscape or environment done to the same exacting standard.
He sells his work extensively through gallery exhibitions as well as individual commissions. He has an impressive list of patrons including multi-corporate businesses and British peerage. His work can often be seen gracing the covers of well known sporting magazines.

Looking toward Greenock
Yesterday was a truly lovely day, so much so that as the working day finished and twilight beckoned, I decided to enjoy the remains of the day with a delightful coastal walk.
It may seem strange that working near the seashore you take your window vista with a pinch of salt (yep-it’s there every morning I wake too), but I was astounded by the beauty of the day.
Perhaps, as there wasn’t snow, wind or rain (no jacket required), it was milder than it has been in weeks, meant I didn’t want to miss out enjoying the day so, off I went with a spring in my step and Spring in the air!
As you can see, my route took me from sunshine to twilight, just look at the remarkable shades of colour and light.

Douglas Roulston, originally from Glasgow, studied at Duncan of Jordanstone, University of Dundee and achieved a Bachelor of Fine Art. He then went onto complete a Master of Fine Art.
He has taken the myths and legends of the Scottish Highlands and portrayed them with oil on canvas and expressive charcoal drawings. His passion for landscape has derived from his enthusiasm and love for outdoor sports such as skiing, mountain biking and hill walking.
In undertaking these sports he has had the time to appreciate the true beauty and atmosphere of the Highlands. This beauty inspired him to study 19th century Romantic artists who first started to capture the picturesque scenery of places such as Glencoe and Loch Katrine.
He has painted from his imagination and tried to capture the intensity of the Highlands and the power that it has over humanity. This is highlighted by over exaggerating rock faces and creating piercing light rays through breaking clouds, reflection and the tranquility of distant springs and lochs. Mankind or any human creations rarely feature in his work.
It is the awe of nature, and the spirit of the sublime of nature that is explored throughout his work.
Brrr. A little frosty this morning – hence my choice of art print for today is Winter Calm by Lin Pattullo.
Lin is a versatile painter who can turn her skilful hand to figurative work as well as landscapes, seascapes, urban scenes and still lifes. There is a subtlety in colour, tone and composition in her work.
