Scilly Art- Tresco’s outdoor gallery

I was on Tresco and spotted this stunning painting.

This is one of four paintings created by renowned landscape artist Anthony Garratt. The paintings are about two and a half metres wide and capture the stunning and ever changing island scenery. Anthony hopes that by displaying his art outdoors ‘the painting’s appearance will change as the light and weather shifts around them, offering a thought-provoking take on the island’s unique microclimate.’

An outdoor gallery is certainly a novel idea and I would highly recommend a trip to Tresco to see the paintings as my photo does not do them justice! If you are unable to visit Tresco then you can watch this short video of Anthony Garratt in action.
