A view of the River Girvan at Blairquhan Estate. It was painted in 1989 and exhibited at The Kelly Gallery in Glasgow in that year

Fullerton lived in the village of Stratton which is next to The Blairquhan Estate and was an area that he painted regularly and appears regularly in pictures of this period.

James Fullarton is essentially a modern day Colourist, he enjoys painting in the west of Scotland, using a broad palette with colour always the dominant feature. His subject matter includes landscape, portraiture and still life executed in both oil and acrylic.

Fullarton paints the landscape around him in a manner that hovers on abstraction at times.
