A painting of Fran

In your face

An Edinburgh family
RE | Issue 12 | 2017

 

Henrietta Scott's 'Edinburgh' painting was short-listed for the Royal Academy's Summer exhibition in 2018.

 

"I studied art all through school but hadn’t picked up a paintbrush for years, not until last year. Now I go every Saturday to Putney School of Art in London. I painted this (in oils) from a photograph I took while visiting my friend Fran in Edinburgh. This is Fran’s family: Calum, Arlo (the baby) and Marple (the cat). The painting is in their home now." HENRIETTA SCOTT
