Glen Scouller’s atmospheric sketch-like painting features a colourful Mediterranean kitchen. The interesting use of perspective leads our gaze away from the large pizza in the foreground to the mystical figure in the background. Although he merges into his surroundings, we can assume from his white hat that he is the chef in this kitchen. Through the use of bright colours and a shiny silver pencil, Scouller achieves a freedom and vibrance in his style, giving his work simplicity and clarity.

Glen Scouller was born in Glasgow in 1950 and studied at Glasgow School of Art between 1968 and 1973. He trained as a teacher at Jordanhill College and from 1974 taught Art in Glasgow secondary schools. He pursued his passion for painting in his spare time and began tutoring at Glasgow School of Art in 1986. The turning point in his career was 1989 when he was elected a member of the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts and gave up all of his teaching posts to concentrate on painting full time. In 1997 he became an elected member of the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolours, becoming Vice President in 2007.
