Lovely new watercolours by Jim Dewar

Great to see the lovely Jim Dewar yesterday for a catch up and meet Millie the dog…Jim has dropped in some super new atmospheric watercolours – we can’t wait to get these incredibly calming pieces hung up on the walls…I alway think of Jims work as searching for that the ideal getaway/cabin in the tundra, where we would all like to live…a place in the wilderness.

These are all available as from today: please contact me for sizes, price etc.

Very excited and proud to be hosting this superb exhibition which will run for the month of September.

All Pastels are for sale – please contact me for Sizes and Prices.

Born in Dundee, Fiona attended Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, between 1975-79. Fiona first started to exhibit in 1996, and is now recognised as one of the leading pastel landscape artists in Scotland. She has become widely renowned for her characteristic and richly toned portrayals of the dramatic mountain landscapes of the highlands, and evocative studies of the ever changing skies and shorelines around her native Broughty Ferry and the Tay Esuary.


Fiona has exhibited with several prominent galleries, and her work is now enthusiastically collected throughout Scotland, and can also be found in private collections throughout the UK and abroad.

However Granny often said “you must, at least let people know you own a trumpet …”

It was nice to be mentioned in despatches in the Times yesterday – lovely to feel appreciated after all these years in the tundra.

“The Must Mooch shop is the Braemar Gallery ( a treasure trove of quirky prints and Scottish landscapes run by art school graduates Andy and Kirsty Braidwood”

Yey! Us!

New Jim Wylie paintings arriving on Sunday morning

Some fabulous new Jim Wylie paintings are packed up and currently abroad the Tundra Express. These new works on canvas will be arriving at the Gallery on Sunday morning. I always get very excited when the new work arrives – over the 20 years of dealing with Jim, I’ve come to marvel at his highly personal sense of composition, his unique colour palette and what’s more, the obvious care and attention he takes in the application of the paint. These are wonderfully considered and developed paintings. We are very lucky to have him on board the good ship Braemar.

What a day to do the Birkwood circular walk! If you ever need to get all smoothed out inside I heartily recommend the Birkwoods – you can sit silently and observe the deer, the finches and buntings, toads in the wet ground, the light which seems specific to the area – as its breaks through the twisted birch branches and the weather moving slowly over the mighty Cairngorm mountains. It really gives me a sense of scale and peace.

Greetings from the tundra – we have had a visit from one of our very favourite people: Stuart Buchanan. Stuart has just dropped off some gorgeous new works in oil – sometimes on wood, sometimes on canvas and sometimes on old paint tubes!! I have been working with Stuart from my first day at the gallery and my appreciation and respect for his work has only grown over that time….these have to be viewed in the flesh to be fully appreciated.
