David’s taster for ‘Sketchbook’ project


Brechin Town House Museum has a new art exhibition of landscapes by artist David Adam, at which he invites the viewer to explore the meaning of landscape and its intrinsic importance to the Scottish spirit.

Each of the paintings is accompanied by an elegiac verse that speaks to the fleeting nature of man’s connection and experience of landscape.

David is also exhibiting some pastel sketches that form a taster of a project called ‘Sketchbook’.

Started in 2009, this series will be produced as a book in the future.

“To journey for miles through the Scottish hills recording the landscape in various conditions; ‘Sketchbook’ shares my passion and love for mountains and nature,” explained David.

“Using pastels for outdoor sketching is a direct and quick technique to capture colour, mood and movement especially on the hills where the weather can be wild.

“Through colour and line, sketches can reveal so much more about a place and allows us to share in a passing moment.”

An informal viewing in the company of the artist will take place on Saturday, May 5 between 2p m and 4 pm and all are welcome.

The exhibition runs until the May 21 The museum is open Monday to Saturday 10 am to 5 pm.
