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.

Eilidh Stewart grew up on the Hebridean island of North Uist. She studied fine art at the University of The Highlands and Islands where she obtained a BA (HONS) in Fine Art during 2013. Dividing her time between painting and her career as an Art & Design teacher, Eilidh often travels around Scotlands Coastal villages and beaches in search of inspiration. Each piece begins as small locational sketches which often aim to capture the ever changing light as well as raw aspects of the sea. Studies are later used as starting points to develop oil paintings, where the varied application of layered textures creates a feeling of depth, whilst reflecting the sea’s movements. Collage and mono printing combine to build up the natural variation of surfaces found on rocks which surround the Scottish coasts. View all posts by Eilidh Stewart
