James SOMERVILLE - Moonlight

Scottish Contemporary Artist: James Somerville

''Moonlight'' is an example of how the art of James Somerville displays a haunting, atmospheric quality with a fine sense of space and movement. Somerville painted this study, ''Moonlight'', in Greece. The colours he has used emphasise the light and shade in the architectural forms depicted.

Early training in wood engraving taught James Somerville to focus on the importance of planning light and shade into each work. A fascination with architectural subjects grew with travel in Greece, Spain and France.

James Somerville particularly enjoys depicting the way in which some architectural subjects seem to evolve from the landscape and meld with one another in an organic way. A recurrent theme of his paintings is this exploration of buildings, both Scottish and European, in their surroundings. Scottish Landscapes also feature in his work. Somerville''s use of acrylic adds texture and strength of colour.

In addition to Red Rag Scottish Art Gallery James Somerville has exhibited at other leading Scottish Art Galleries and elsewhere in the British Isles. Each painting at Red Rag is sourced from the James Somerville artist studio and like all Red Rag Scottish art and Contemporary art it can be shipped worldwide.
