William Scott


I went to the William Scott exhibition in the Ulster museum the other day. I took a few sneaky pictures (ok so I took 3…)

it was good, as photography isnt allowed, I decided to do a few brief sketches. Nothing fancy more like vague outlines, but during this I was approached and asked if it was ok to film me for their youtube video. I’ve not seen it yet, but they have a video up about the exhibtion opening

My drawings were very basic and my version of the Hare and the Candle I feel is a bit ‘overdone’ as to be filmed I had to go back over my sketch which at that point had been finished and the dark edge and legs of the table were added. I was quite pleased regardless with my work.

I noticed that as time progressed he moved from portraiture to more abstract and still life works, with more colour eventually being added to this art, although I feel blue features dominantly in  a lot of the work featured at the exhibition as he moved from more bland colours used in his abstract work to a mix of dark colours with blue and one work literally ablaze with red and oranges.
