John Busby
Flight Over Fife
oil on canvas, 99 x 104 cm
Reg. No: G1516
John has used muted colours to depict the geometric fields of Fife as seen from a glider. The softly blended paint, with the shadows of the clouds, creates a sense of depth and aerial perspective. The small shadow of the glider is barely visible - in contrast to the strong shadow of the glider's wing in the foreground of the painting.

John illustrated over 35 books about birds and animals and exhibited his work widely.
