Pascale Rentsch RSW is based in the East Lothian region of Scotland where she makes the most of the surrounding hills and coastal landscape. She draws and paints outdoors, directly from nature in all weather conditions. This is a technique called en plein air painting. She works instinctively and spontaneously to capture nature and the elements.
Talking about her painting Pascale says, “My language is paint and like a conductor guiding an orchestra, I enjoy working outside with my materials, exploring mark-making and connecting with my surroundings, reacting to what I see, feel and hear. I love the fact that whenever I am in nature, I know I will always find something beautiful, something that touches me however small and insignificant it might appear“.
Originally from Switzerland Pascale trained in Scotland where she graduated with a BA in Drawing and Painting at Edinburgh College of Art in 1999. In October 2022 she was awarded full membership of The Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW).
Pascale will be exhibiting in a solo show at Watermark Gallery in March 2023. Her previous exhibition in 2022 alongside Michele Bianco in Off The Beaten Track was a resounding success and we are looking forward to seeing new work in the forthcoming exhibition.
