An acclaimed Ayrshire artist, who is on show this month at the prestigious Glasgow Art Club, will be giving a demonstration in Fairlie Village Hall on Tuesday, March 15.

Chick McGeehan, who is one of Scotland's foremost modern painters, has an exhibition called Transitions at the long-established city institution.

Chick draws and paints unique artwork based on the nude figure, Scottish harbours and the built environment  works in oils, acrylic and pastel.

He said: "My current work is is mainly inspired by the light and atmosphere of the Scottish coastline and harbours as well as the architecture and light of our towns and cities. My main influences at this time are J.D. Ferguson and the Scottish Colourists. I am also currently inspired by the styles of Dufy, Matisse and the Fauves as well as Impressionism.

"From my travels abroad I have been inspired by the colour and atmosphere of Mediterranean old towns to produce a series of lively, colourful works."

The local artist has 27 works on show at Glasgow Art Club until March 11.
