The ‘plein-air’ paintings of Alma Wolfson are wonderful interpretations of the rapidly-changing, rich colours of the Scottish landscape. Whatever the weather Alma takes on the challenge of immersing herself within the landscape, preferably close to water, and simply paints what she sees. Her willingness to work through all weathers is key to her success. She can capture, instantly, the effect of the changing light on highland landscapes. As the sun plays ‘hide and seek’ with the clouds, she makes quick adjustments to the colours in the sky and on the land. The effects are often breathtaking. The main influences on her work come from Joan Eardley and William Gillies but over the years she has developed her own style and built up a loyal following of collectors.
