Welcome to the Original Paintings by Artist, Tim Scott Bolton

Born in Shropshire in 1947, UK artist, Tim Scott Bolton originally gained a degree in Estate Management from London University but since 1984 has painted full-time. He and his wife, Tricia, lived in Kenya for a few years and after leaving bought a farm in Wiltshire which they run organically.

In the redundant farm buildings they opened the Summerleaze Gallery where exhibitions, courses and lectures are held.

Tim travels extensively to paint and apart from Africa, India, the Middle East, United States and Europe are common destinations. He has also been artist in residence at Garsington Opera twice and in 2016 he  did a number of events to celebrate Capability Brown tercentenary about whom he wrote a book, ‘A Brush With Brown’.

In 2017 Tim accompanied the Prince of Wales to Europe as Royal tour artist. In 2021 he accompanied HRH in Jordan in Egypt.

A number of solo shows have been held in London at Malcolm Innes, Tryon, Mathaf Galleries, Fine Art Commissions and Indar Pasricha fine art. He has also shown at the Grosvernor House and the Royal Geographical Society.

Tim Scott Bolton’s work is held in many collections including Her Majesty the Queen’s, HRH the Prince of Wales, the National Trust and many other private collections.

Royal Tour of Egypt and Jordan 2021

Having accompanied the Prince of Wales on his tour of European countries in 2017, I was Lucky enough to accompany HRH on his tour of Jordan and Egypt.

We flew to Aqaba and then I went alone with a driver to Wadi Rum and more specifically to the camp of Lawrence of Arabia. He directed his attacks on the Turks from here during the Arab insurrection in 1917. From here I went to paint at Um Qais, a Roman and then Byzantine site to the far north of Jordan.



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
