‘Split Rock & Clachtoll salmon bothy’

Watercolour

Memories of summer at the glorious white sand beaches of Clachtoll, Sutherland. The iconic ‘Split Rock’ draws the eye and in the distance we can see Cul Beag, Stac Pollidh and the Coigach peninsular across the water.

Painted in artists’ quality watercolours on Arches paper and double-mounted in Antique White, this would make an ideal Christmas present for someone who loves our pristine beaches and clear, turquoise waters.

Size approximately 39cm x 19cm

Price, including double mount and UK postage: £145

Disappointed? Ask me if I can paint something similar. Commissions always welcome, within reasonable time constraints.

Summer storm clouds, Balnakeil’

Pastel

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
