Brandon McVittie is a painter with a love of a traditional approach to portraying landscape composition. He employs a later 19th century sensibility to his work and is inspired by the dramatic lighting found in European and North American painting of an older period. He mixes colours from a largely restricted palette of earth tone pigments when striving to impart atmospheric effect and ambient glow when emulating the spirit of older era works.
