landscape painter hoping to find new colours for paint making

Hello , I am a British painter who lives in the Western Isles of Scotland . I paint landscapes and love to make my own colours sourced from the landscape itself . I am always interested in finding inspiration in different surroundings and would also like to broaden my collection of earth pigments . I would like to find a place where the possibility of painting with oils during my stay would be acceptable

Propositions artistiques en échange de la résidence (oeuvres, cours, ateliers, dîner, concert...) : I would be happy to exchange an original artwork for the residence
Description environment are you looking for ( nature, urban, other…) : I am particularly drawn to the sea , we live on an island so the water features heavily in my work. I would also like to find a residence amongst the trees , a forest setting or similar would be lovely , we have few trees here on the islands .
Describe your projects for a residence : I would like to source coloured pigments for use in paintings made whilst on the residence
Professional website :
Description of the type of workspace needed (office, studio, rehearsal space…) : I would need a studio space or similar from which to paint

    Hello! It’s Marta and Adam- we are young couple of artists from Poznań, Poland. Graduated at the same art university and the same major – printmaking. Even though our art journey started with a traditional graphic techniques such as metal printing, lithography, silkscreen and our favorite linocut, we loved to try other medias. Now our interests now are widely spreaded: jewelry, sculptures, cloths, furniture, mosaic and ceramics, small architecture, murals, land art, music, film and animation. Both of us find joy in re-using, re-cycling and renovating things. Basically giving a new life and purpose to things that others might have missed. For example Adam constructed a huge fox sculpture from metal scraps and trash, while Marta cut masks from wood leftovers and make mosaic from the crushed colorful tiles she found during her walks. Encouraging others to follow the path of zero waste we lead a workshops: Adam – furniture up-cycling and Marta bringing a new life to clothes by dying them with natural ingredients. Since they start to live together, even the leftover paper that suppose to end up in trash is turned into art by making paper-mache sculptures. We play several music instruments and we will be happy to jam together! Non-smoking, pet-loving :) Check our portfolios here:
