Welcome to my website!
Hi - I'm William Mather and I live and paint in the Scottish Highlands, working mainly in oils.
For years I have worked outdoors in watercolours but recently oils have taken over….again mostly painting 'plein air' in all weathers - see below and also in page: "WM in Action & kit". The images reflect some of the places and kit both for landscapes and portraits. Recently the 2020 'self-isolation' caused by Covid 19 has resulted in a lot more studio-work.
The studio is close to our home in Fortrose, near Inverness and is base-camp for working in acrylics, pastel, charcoal, pen-and-ink as well as oils.
This website reflects the diversity that I enjoy from Landscapes and Portraits, to ‘Portrait Sketches’, Africa images, and Abstracts.
I have always loved painting even though I have had careers in journalism and then in the Anglican Church - as a Vicar! So there’s not been much time for anything else! I have exhibited when possible but retirement in 2010 has given more time for the painting.
My wife, Libby and I have three wonderful children all doing interesting things in different areas of interest.
Just click on one of the 'galleries' above and enjoy a good browse!
