Andrew Sinclair is the founder and proprietor of Resipole Studios Fine Art Gallery. He graduated with BA Hons in Fine Art (drawing and painting) from Duncan of Jordanstone, Dundee in 1996. Andrew is predominantly figurative in his approach, using a very traditional basis for his painting. Andrew is currently enjoying the lighter approach of painting 'Alla prima', bringing an immediate response to the subject onto the canvas. Inspired by the painting style of Sargeant and Raeburn, the finished result is fresh and shows a confidence of paint handling and composition. Choosing to work on a series of paintings on one subject allows the viewer an insight into the approach and techniques used by the artist. From the subtle variations in the colours to the brushstrokes and palette knife marks that depict the form and textures. Currently exploring and developing this technique into more intricate and complicated compositions, Andrew looks forward to the challenges and the results.
Andrew has work in public collections with the Highland council and Duncan of Jordanstone college of art in Dundee.
His paintings are held in private collections in the UK, France, Germany, Kenya, New Zealand, Australia, USA, The Netherlands and with TRH The Duke and Duchess of Rothesay.
