Alan Bain, SCA

Attracted to watercolour in 1972, Alan J. T. Bain has specialized in painting boreal Canada. Trained as a geologist, his love of the bush, of canoe and open road have emerged in his landscapes as a distinctive style of outdoor painting.


Presently an Elected member of CSPW and a fellow of OWS, Alan's paintings have enjoyed a wide distribution. He speaks of his plein aire paintings as visual tape recordings.

"They are a distillation of years of travel and painting."Through them", Alan says, "I reminisce again with a land that talks to me of the ageless and contant lure of our nothwoods."
