Artwork description:

Colours of Orkney, impressionist style image in blue and gold.

Have you ever dreamed of an island far away from the world? A place of gentle colours and soft skies? Orkney is that place. This image is not of a well known beauty spot, it is not a famous part of the island, but, it captures the essence of the place, the sense of being close to the ground, close to the water, close to the elements.

The image is a long exposure made on 'the Mainland', the largest island in the archipelago of small islands that make up Orkney and lie off the north east coast of Scotland. The name is the Viking for Seal Islands and it is a place of fishermen and farmers. This is a place of softly rolling hills that dip in and out of small pools of silvery blue water. In Autumn, the bracken is vividly orange and the light from soft puffy clouds lights up fields of intensely green grass.
This is one of a series of images that are my impression of the colours of Orkney. The blue on this island is more lilac than teal and the grasses more muted ochre than lemon yellow. A fabulous combination that excites the imagination.


This is the canvas version, each canvas comes with a 2 inch white border for your framer to wrap around the frame. Bespoke sizes available.

About My Work
I am passionate about using luxury papers/canvases that hold their colours for a lifetime! For these special large prints of my work I use beautiful museum quality canvas and the highest quality inks.

About My Materials
People often say that my images look like paintings because of the richness of the colours, the depth of the black and the texture of the materials I use.

Other Printing Options
I am happy to take custom orders or print on fine art papers, just drop me a line if you prefer this in another size.
This can also be produced on metal or fine art paper, see other listings for more information on these or get in touch.

A Note on Canvases
Canvases are unframed and unmounted, they need to be stretched or framed once you get them. They are varnished and come with approximately 2 inch border to allow for stretching round the frame. Once ready, they are carefully wrapped in acid free tissue then shipped in a sturdy art tube to ensure safe delivery.

Materials used:

Fine art canvas and non fade ink
