Ken Howard at Troon Art Club

A special guest, Ken Howard, visited Troon Art Club last night for a great evening of stories and paintings.

He was very entertaining, relating a life in the field as a plein air painter and one who always paints from life. He revealed he was a half Scot having a Scottish mother. I should have asked how he would have voted in the referendum!

He has always been a favourite of mine. Painting the light rather than surface; what he sees rather than what he knows; getting to know, really know, a subject by revisiting the same scene.

Thanks to Bobby Johnstone, the club programme director for luring Ken all the way from London.
