Ann Vastano lives and works in the Scottish Highlands.
“I have been constantly driven to recreate through art work those dramatic land forms which surround me. I am also particularly captivated by those character filled bothies and cottages which lie strewn across the highland park. Along with the fickle weather fronts we experience here in the north, these muses are a constant challenge and inspiration”.
Ann says, “Sketching outdoors allows me to immerse oneself completely in the mood and atmosphere of the subject, capturing my perception of its essence”.
For the past few years Ann has worked mainly in pastels and acrylic. However her new work has encompassed using both these mediums alongside paper collage, including – in some instances the use of the written word, which she feel adds another dimension to the composition, opening the work up to further interpretation.

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.
