David Smith is one of Scotlandís leading contemporary painters. Widely collected and much respected by his peers, he was elected a member of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW) in November 2011. This will be David's eight solo exhibition with Lime Tree Gallery and it should cause a stir. ďMy upcoming exhibition has been an exciting change of direction for me as I have expanded my subject matter beyond the Scottish borders. My new paintings draw on my love of travel and feature the seaboard of Scotland as well as Southern Europe and the Mediterranean. Painting and sketching en plein air allows me to focus on the colour and harmony of the subject in front of me immediately. My new exhibition with Lime Tree Gallery captures the contrast between the quiet tonal blues and greys of the North West Scottish mists and the warm vibrant reds and ochres of the Southern Pyrenees. David will be in the gallery to discuss his work on Saturday 13th October from 11 am to 3 pm.
