Video: Mallett’s Palette

One of television’s more colourful personalities visited Broughty Ferry last week to open an exhibition of his artwork.

Timmy Mallett, better known to a generation as the man behind Mallett’s mallett and WACaday dropped by Eduardo Alessandro Studios on Friday for the opening night.

And even before the gallery had been opened to the public advance purchases had accounted for four out of the 30 pieces on display.

Timmy mostly bases his work on landscapes and scenes that have caught his eye, with several pieces inspired by local vistas.

Among the acrylic and oil paintings were depictions of the Needle’s E’e at Arbroath cliffs, a man emerging from heavy haar at Broughty Ferry Castle and a striking portrayal of the solitary Bell Rock Lighthouse.
