Below are examples of my work and you can see other pieces and at http://bryanangus.wix.com/bryanangusart. I have a tendancy to follow project threads in creating groups of work - for a while it was local buildings and spaces, then family history images, then getting caught up in still life. After a period of making I will get an urge to switch materials or subject and off I go again.

An oil painting inspired by the winter of 2010/11. This was shown at Coast Festival and sold there.
Crook o' Ness
Oil painting of a corner facing the sea in Macduff. This painting is now in Germany with a customer from one of my art holidays.
I enjoy making small oil paintings in the studio 'all prima', in one sitting. This one is from 2010.
Autumn on the Aberchirder road looking towards Huntly. Slightly abstracted, I was drawn by the shapes in the landscape that jigsaw together.
A pastel this time, depicting my family from the 1930s, eating out near the swimming pool at Portsoy. This won the Aberdeen Artists' Members Prize at the annual exhibition in Aberdeen in 2011.
Another soft pastel, this time inspired by images in the press showing people gathering outside Bin Laden's Compound.
An example of my experiments in abstraction. However, when I'm making these I'm actually working on small landscapes and interiors that take a lot from my time in theatre design.
Palimpsest is the name for a document or text that has been reworked, scrubbed and written over - mostly used in regards to manuscrpit. It reflects the method I used with the pastels, working, revising, often using the 'shadows' left from previous work to direct the next layer.
