For the past 35 years Charles Jamieson has travelled extensively painting wonderful landscapes from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean, from New England to South Africa, immersing himself in the local colour and way of life. Earlier this year Charlie returned to Devon, where he spent every day revisiting his favourite places along the coast and creeks, producing a vast portfolio of sketches which he would later turn into paintings back in his studio in Ayrshire. The result is a wonderful collection of vibrant canvases, showing the influence of the Scottish Colourists and the Fauvists, but representing Charlie's own take on the life and landscapes of this beautiful part of the West Country.
“I walked into Charlie’s studio on a drizzly Scottish Evening and plunged instantly into warm Mediterranean light. Colour exploded from the canvases. Heat shimmered from white sands. Boats bobbed on seas so exquisitely, gorgeously, impossibly blue that I wanted to leap in immediately. His buildings blend, his colours bite, his compositions balance in all sorts of artfully constructed way. His brush smiles as it beguiles, luring us into a calm and luminous world of his making, where everything is sharp and bold and distilled to its essence.” Sally Magnusson, writer and broadcaster.
