Douglas Roulston

Douglas Roulston

Douglas studied at Duncan of Jordanstone and is a Master of Fine Art (MFA). He likes to take Scottish highland myths and legends and portray them using oils, acrylics and charcoal. Recently instead of using a paintbrush he has experimented in some work by applying paint with his hands, resulting in lively, energetic, expressive pieces.

Douglas studied the work of 19th Century Romantic artists who first portrayed the picturesque scenery of areas like Glencoe and Loch Katrine. Much of his work is developed using his imagination and he captures the intensity and majesty of the landscape. This is highlighted by over exaggerating rock faces and creating piercing light rays through breaking clouds, reflection and the tranquility of distant springs and lochs. Mankind or any human creations rarely feature in his work as it is the awe of nature, and the spirit of the sublime that he explores.
