Neil’s studio was very important to him. The first article in his press cuttings book is entitled “Painting by the Sea is his Dream”. Thirty years later he finally achieved this first in Pittenweem in 1987 then later in Cellardyke from 1995.

“Painting for me is a soliloquy with the spectator very much in the role of eavesdropper.

Thought is fluid. What you put on canvas is concrete. To put thought on canvas is difficult.

As I cover the white ground with a three inch brush loaded with paint, I think ‘Dear God, give me strength, here I go again'”

Neil Dallas Brown
