Accompanied by his handmade mahogany painting box, George Noakes journeys through the Highlands and Islands painting his landscapes en plein air, returning to his studio to refine his favourite views. Born and raised in the West Midlands, he has since fallen in love with Scotland's landscapes, colours, and light, and his work is often inspired by the drive to capture the conditions of a particular moment in time.
'There is an immediacy to Noakes' work, as though you can feel the crisp mountain air through the paint.' Maia, Gallery Assistant.
