Iain Harkess

Iain Harkess

Born and educated in Edinburgh, Iain has painted or drawn for as long as he can remember. Although keen on art at school the academic and career won out and he has spent most of his adult life working in public health. Despite a hectic role in the NHS Iain still found some time to paint and sold regularly in Lincolnshire and Scotland. He held his first solo exhibition some 20 years ago in Boston, Lincolnshire.

He left the NHS in 2008 to concentrate on his 'second career' as an artist. His chosen medium is watercolour and works from drawings, photos and water colour sketches done on site. He has had a well received solo exhibition in Lincolnshire in 2012 and has been concentrating on landscapes and flowers, developing a direct style that tries to capture their variety of shapes, colours and fleeting shadows.inspiration comes from the landscapes he experiences in his travels as well as those more familiar in his own homeland. Whether it is the awe and wonder of the Grand Canyon or the windblown nature of the Scottish coast his focus is on capturing something of the emotional response to them, communicating and sharing this with the viewer.

Iain is a largely self-taught artist and has attended and been inspired by a number of short courses as well as by simply viewing the work of other artists.There are so many really good watercolourists around that challenge me to try and develop. However, I can't help but come back to the works of Trevor Chamberlain, Seago, John Yardley and Heaton Cooper as some sort of watercolour yardstick.
