Welcome to our web gallery and online gallery showcasing and selling watercolour prints by Wallace A Cuthbertson.
Wallace's love of sailing has taken him to many, otherwise inaccessible, locations across Scotland's west coast, taking him as far as St. Kilda in the North Atlantic and to many of the islands of the Outer and Inner Hebrides as well as the Firth of Clyde.

We have over 100 of Wallace's watercolours painted over a 65 year period during his extensive travels to the Scottish Isles and west coast including Lewis, Harris, Barra, Taransay, Ardnamurchan, Rum, Eigg, Muck, Canna, Mull, Skye, Islay and Arran.
Wallace always takes his sketch book and paints wherever he travels. Whilst most of the locations are of the west coast of Scotland, he has also painted in England, Italy, Spain, France, Israel, USA and Australia.

Wallace A Cuthbertson was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1930.
He had no formal art training. At 18 he was interested in the watercolour work of a friend who sketched and painted on every occasion (no digital cameras in those days). He was shown various techniques and then told "get on with it!" A sketch book and paints were duly purchased and that was that. The early sketches and paintings have not been included in this website!
Training as a Chartered Quantity Surveyor helped him with the drawing of buildings and fortunately his association with Discovery Cruising, a Christian Sailing Training charity, enabled him to sketch and paint all over the West Coast of Scotland.
Wallace takes his sketch book and watercolours on all his travels which over the years has accumulated a collection of charming images from Australia to Tennessee in addition to a body of work covering the Western Isles, Mainland Scotland and England.
He lives with his wife Val in Stirlingshire, Scotland.
