Afternoon sunlight, Horse Island’


This pastel was painted a few years ago and I found it hiding in my studio. One I always liked, I felt it was time to give it an airing!

This was the view from my house, when I lived in Polglass, Achiltibuie and it’s still one of my favourite views in the whole world. I spent many blissful hours watching the light change across this magnificent landscape, and I especially loved it on the more dramatic, stormy days when the rainclouds would briefly part and bathe the Summer Isles in brilliant, golden light. The next moment the rays would touch the Dundonnell and Fisherfield mountains behind, leaving the islands in deep silhouette. I have tried to catch one such afternoon here and I think anyone who knows the area well will recognise this kind of weather!

Size approximately 35cm x 20 cm, plus frame

£180 (not including delivery/postage) This is a special, reduced price as the painting is older stock, but this in no way reflects how I feel about the painting!

This pastel painting is sold double-mounted in off-white and in a distressed, ‘antique’ gold frame which matches the colours very well. I can’t sell pastel paintings unframed as they are too fragile. As this is not a very large painting I might be able to organise postage, although collection (or delivery, by arrangement) is far preferable.
