‘Summer storm clouds, Balnakeil’
Size approximately 58 x 42cm
This big, dramatic pastel was painted from a photograph I took on an incredible summer’s day a few years ago. Although brooding clouds were gathering, the machair was in full bloom and it was very warm; silvery sunlight glimmered on the pools left by the retreating tide and I wished I’d had my sketchbook. I did, luckily, have my old Pentax camera and took some wonderful photos, which I then proceeded to lose. Imagine my delight when I came upon them during a clearout. Usually I dislike using such old material for inspiration but this day was still fresh in my mind.
This is a large painting in a heavy, rustic (though modern) wooden frame and I can not send it by post. It will need to be collected from Lochinver or personally delivered, by arrangement (extra cost to be discussed)
Framed pastel: £750
