But Scotland and a love ofpainting proved too strong as McWhirter returned to Glasgow in 2012, quickly establishing a reputation with her thickly impasto-ed, brilliantly coloured work – flower paintings, abstracts and landscapes – that reflected strongly her debt to, and affection for, Scottish Colourist painting. That is a rich tradition to follow and much, often largely decorative work, has come out ofit but McWhirter seems alert to the dangers, the sheer exuberance of her approach and innate colour sense avoiding all the pitfalls.
