Reviews | Botanic Garden paintings

The Advertiser, Wednesday, August 8, 1990

Those who are bound to hate the cool chic of this exhibition can turn for solace to Neville Weston’s paintings of the Botanic Garden at BMG Fine Art.

The riot of color and light which fills the gallery is a delight to the eye. Despite the many years he has lived in Australia, Weston still paints with a European palette of soft colors and with an approach to painting that is rooted in the British realist tradition. He is a passionate advocate of painting “en plein air” and can often be seen practicing what he preaches in outdoor locations around Adelaide.

The cultivated landscape and dappled European light of the Botanic Garden provide him with an ideal if unchallenging subject.
