Simon Buchan

Australian palette knife artist inspired by the natural beauty of Sydney harbour, East Coast beaches, the mountain terrain and rural land views.
Simon Buchan works from photographic references in his studio. His colour palette is energetic and bright which gives even the most sombre clouds a unique lift. His methodical approach to perspective centres around his grid based process, which he has perfected to create both accurate and visually comprehensive representations. He explains “Some of my work is quite realistic in nature although I also like to represent the subject with texture. I seek to capture the spirit of what I am seeing”
