Howard is famed for his traditional and timeless landscapes featuring snow-capped mountains,
sparkling rivers and native forests. Howard succeeds in capturing the atmospheric light and colours
of Scotland , and in particular, Royal Deeside as only an artist painting outdoors can. His style of
“emotional realism” conveys the sense of being in a particular place at a particular moment in time.
Mary, on the other hand, is acclaimed for her night scenes of Aberdeen, which often focus on an
element of mystery or intrigue within the scene for the viewer to play out a story. Well known
streets and buildings illuminated by bright and colourful city lighting are captured in her distinctive
style “where the musicality of light can be observed within a brief pause”.
