My position as Tournament Artist sponsored by Ricoh in partnership with IMG to paint the golf courses which provide the venues for the annual British Womens' Open continues.

Following the 2016 tournament at Woburn the 2017 Championship was held at the picturesque Kingsbarns course in Fife. The 2018 tournament is set to be staged at Royal Lytham and St Annes.

Doubtfire Gallery Exhibition Review

"Contemporary Scottish painters, unlike their English counterparts, would never seems to have any hang ups about whether they are abstract or figurative painters or whether they are comfortable around colour. They have, of course, a painterly tradition behind them, one that spans back the late 19th century, Fergusson, Peploe et al, not to mention the cultural ramifications of the ‘auld alliance’ with France, and it seems to give a huge freedom of manoeuvre. All this is illustrated by the gorgeous landscapes, still life and abstracts by John Kingsley currently on show at  Doubtfire Gallery. Kingsley may be a Glasgow boy - born, trained at the art school, living and working there, but he paints with a remarkable sense of cosmopolitan exuberance and intense visual enjoyment."
