The 2017 Royal Tour

Tim was chosen as the artist to accompany the 2017 spring Royal tour made by their Royal Highness’s the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall. Coincidentally the first day of the tour, 29th of March, was Tim’s 70th birthday and he arrived at RAF Brize Norton at 8 a.m. slightly the worse for wear! He was overwhelmed when HRH presented him with a fine plate made by one of the Princes charities in Egypt.

Tim travelled alongside the official Royal party, visiting parts of Romania, Italy and Austria, spending most of his days painting. Evidence of these works are shown on the following page. Read More >>




Celebrating the 300th Anniversary of Capability Brown

Tim Scott Bolton has painted over 60 Capability Brown landscapes and other settings across the UK for an exhibition in 2016 ahead of the Capability Brown festival, and for the release of his book ‘A Brush with Brown’.

“From childhood I have been passionate about the great country houses, many of which were abandoned and dilapidated in the 1950s when I explored them with my mother. I became a full-time artist over 40 years ago and this has allowed me to professionally indulge myself by painting them”. Tim Scott Bolton
