With limited research and extensive experimentation, Scott behaves like an obsessed scientist on a quest for new pigment properties. He powders local coloured stones in a coffee grinder to form a palette of ochres. Recently, he dry-fried ochre found on a riverbed and discovered a unique burnt umber, a pigment used on some of his latest works on paper.
Scott boils barks, leaves and mosses to leach organic dyes. He crushes native berries to produce a surprising array of watery washes and grinds and boils sap to form thick syrups and diluted tints. Even the kitchen plays a small role in his work, with beetroot juice and coffee washes featuring in some of his latest pieces.
