Willie Watt is an architect and a director at the award winning Nicoll Russell Studios. He loves to draw and has drawn since he was at primary school and throughout his career, both in terms of his architectural work, as an architectural illustrator and for simple pleasure in his free time. He believes that the act of drawing catalyses thought and makes the creative process for all involved fun.
Drawing, sketching and painting though is much more to him than simply work it is something he has always done and often it compliments a bike ride along the coast, around a town, into the country or into the wilds of the highlands. His work is underpinned by drawing, but he uses a variety of techniques, historically using watercolour, pens, watercolour pencils/crayons and more and more often mixed media. Willie always draws or paints what he enjoys, what catches his eye with a particular emphasis on architecture, vernacular buildings and boats. Focussing on line, form, texture, materiality and colour, seeking to capture character and context.

Taking inspiration from our featured artist, we encourage you to get outside and capture the character of your surroundings. Build up tones, marks and textures to create your point of view.
