Note: Mary Batchelor attended the Glasgow School of Art where her tutors included: Peter Howson, David Linley and Norrie Kirkham. Working exclusively in acrylics, Mary Batchelor, produced paintings with vibrant and compelling colours. Mary was constantly inspired by the Scottish landscape. She loved bringing the ever changing Scottish countryside to life in her paintings. Mary also found great inspiration from travel abroad, enjoying the challenge of capturing unfamiliar scenes and different light. Mary Batchelor paintings are influenced by the strong tradition of Scottish colourists. She credited Scottish Colourists - Cadell, Peploe, Fergusson and Hunter as a source of great inspiration in her paintings. She admired the bold use of colour and texture, and the confidence exuded in every brush stroke which has contributed so richly to the tradition of Scottish painting.
