Golf Course paintings

Ricoh’s wonderful sponsorship of the British Women’s Open Golf Championship came to an end last year, as has my position as Tournament Artist. The final painting for this project was of Royal Lytham and St Annes Golf Club where the 2018 competition was so memorably won by Britain's Georgia Hall. I am delighted that this painting is now in the club's own collection. In addition, I also completed a large painting of the Old Course at St Andrews which was presented to Ricoh by IMG at the close of their collaboration and this has now been taken to it’s new home in Japan.

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."
