Hugh is a well known and respected Scottish painter; he draws on a tradition of Scottish painters and his wonderfully light-filled paintings try to convey his Christian beliefs in capturing the beauty of nature. Working from life, either 'en plein air', or in the studio, his subject matter before him, he captures life and spirit in his sparkling painting.
He notes: "I am well aware of my rich painterly heritage, from Raeburn, the Glasgow Boys, and the Scottish Colourists; and individual artists such as Stanley Cursiter, Alexander Goudie and internationally renowned John Constable, J S Sargent, De Laszlo, and the greatest artist of all - Rembrandt.
Working through the application of paint with brush, palette knife - and more increasingly with my fingers tapping and moving the paints plasticity - but always from life."
