New print available

Limited edition prints of this large original pastel are now available. This edition measures approximately 10″ x 14″ and is printed on watercolour-style, textured paper. I’ve remamed it ‘Moody skies, far North’ as although it’s Balnakeil beach, it’s fairly typical of a Hebridean or West Coast beach in general, so it can be anywhere you’d like it to be!

The photo here is a little darker than the image actually is.

The first run of prints is just ten copies, so don’t delay!

Original of the month, September

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
