Tom Watt

Tom Watt

Tom Watt studied drawing at Edinburgh College of Art from 1971 to 1975 under Philipson, Peploe, Cumming and Michie. After art college, Tom undertook a career in teaching, ultimately working as head of Art at James Gillespie's High School in Edinburgh. During this time most of his paintings were commissioned pieces. For the last 25 years Tom has devoted himself entirely to painting. Tom has always been fascinated by the effect of light and colour on his surroundings. His subjects have included the small fishing villages of Fife, the canals of Venice and the Tuscan and Gascon countryside. A move from Scotland with his family to the south-west of France has seen him responding to the warm dappled sunlight around him in the harbours of the Mediterranean and the outdoor life of the local people.
