It can be hard to appreciate the depth of details when looking at paintings in photographic form. My recent Machair series has a lot of thick impasto layers which contrast to thinner more translucent areas of application. Layering is what brings the painting to life. Here are a few macro details of recent paintings, enabling you to see the surface textures. Oil paintings are always better viewed in the flesh, however particularly at the moment we know this cannot always be possible. Enjoy, if you wish to enquire about a commission I would be happy to discuss your requirements.
Here are a selection of my sketches from North Uist. I have tried to capture the movement and mood of a different subject this year. The machair has wonderful flowers and grasses, these provided endless inspiration.
