Margaret Evans

Through teaching & painting worldwide, my influences and style have widened as I relish the challenge of new surroundings.  I’m always happy to return home and paint Scotland, through wet techniques in gouache/pastels, watercolour sketches , or oil painting.

I promote and endorse pastels as a serious & worthy medium, use them in dry or wet techniques.  I now paint full time at my studio in the beautiful village of Comrie ,Perthshire
