William Lindsay is a professional artist working in a variety of media including oils, inks and watercolour. Originally from Dumbarton, he moved to Bute in 2021. His works often begin with loose, expressive marks rather than with definite ideas of the finished image, even when working with real objects.
He says, “It’s a bit like going on a journey with no idea of the destination. I try to keep the image open to change and uncertainty. And I intend that the completed image reflects the experience of its making as well as the fleeting experiences of seeing. I may be influenced by elements of landscape and the processes that make them, or by some memory or something I have read, but mark making is the essential element in my work.
