Then 0900 –1700 10-16th June An Inner Place - These 43 watercolour paintings have grown out of my relationship with Scottish landscapes. Over the last year, I have sketched, observed & walked in landscapes from Aberdeenshire to Orkney to Mull. I have absorbed these places deep inside me, and then let them emerge onto paper as and when they want. These paintings are the result and they are therefore as much about me and my emotional response to place as they are about this amazing country. Page 2

Stephen Redpath Stephen grew up in west Wales, a place where he developed a deep and abiding love for the natural world. He went on to study ecology and conducted scientific research related to wildlife and landscape for over 30 years. Illness drove him to retire early in 2019, and since then he has focused on his painting. His burning passion is for landscape painting, mainly in watercolour, a medium he loves because of its luminosity, immediacy and unpredictability. He currently exhibits in six galleries across Scotland and has shown work at the RSW annual exhibition in Edinburgh. He lives with his family in rural Aberdeenshire.
