Scott Naismith, Primary Sky

The oil paintings of Scottish landscape artist Scott Naismith are gorgeous. Particularly his skies.

Primary Sky, watch the timelapse

Working from his studio in Glasgow, Scott’s recent paintings focus on transitional skies and the colours involved when light breaks through cloud.

“Clouds are visible masses of water droplets or frozen ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere. They have the ability to refract and reflect, creating an ever changing perception of light that inspires my use of colour.”
