Note: Born to Scottish parents in London, Sheila Macleod Robertson was a noted painter in oils of marines, seascapes and coastal scenes. Trained at Watford and the Central School of Art & Design, London. She quickly developed a particular interest in the light and mood of sea, coast and landscape. Held many successful solo shows in London and Scotland, including at The McEwan Gallery. Elected member, Royal Society of Marine Artists 1969, also professional member, St Ives Society of Artists. To increase her knowledge of weather and sea conditions of the western seaboard she cruised as a crew member on an ocean yacht. Her work, produced mainly with a palette knife, was regularly exhibited at the RI, ROI & RSMA. When not sailing, she lived in Edinburgh before retiring to Hertfordshire.


A condition report is offered as an indication of any issues visible to the naked eye. As none of our staff is a professional conservator or restorer, buyers must satisfy themselves in respect of condition and McTear’s can provide contact details of local professionals who can provide fully comprehensive expert reports, usually for a modest charge. The condition report does not form part of any contract between McTear's and the buyer, and all lots are offered "as is" in accordance with our Terms of Business available on our website.
