Scotland's landscape, especially the Outer Hebrides and the western seaboard, have been a constant source of inspiration and delight to Marion. She has drawn endless influence from the unique qualities these areas possess, the contrast of the delicacy of certain shorelines and the sense of rugged endurance. The Scottish season and landscape continue to pull Marion back, again and again. Thomson has both lived and worked in the Hebrides, and now visits these familiar islands and coastlines to revitalize her work, and herself! Her use of colour, in subtly expressive ways, reveals and accentuates these qualities, that blend of romantic grandeur with the realities of sea and rain and clouds and sun. The depth and luminosity of colour in these landscapes can be surprising and the medium of oil paint helps to convey this intensity that influences Thomson's work. "My work focuses on moments in that drama – combinations of light and weather, time of day or season playing on the landscape, fleeting changes that create the sense of space and the atmosphere of these places. The changing seasons on the local landscape prove to be a rich source of inspiration for me. Walking from home I can be sketching the local river or canal with the Scottish hills never far away"
