Another bright abstract seascape from North Berwick beach, this one depicting Craigleith island. Its interesting shape changes as you walk along the beach. I recently spent my birthday there and many a morning enjoyed such dawn displays of colour.
Craigleith is one a series of rock islands off the East Lothian coast, the most well-known being the Bass Rock, which are of interest to geologists as well as artists. They are volcanic plugs, evidence of the Lothian region's more volatile distant past.
Painted with acrylic paints with added texture paint and sand from North Berwick beach, it positively glows. The bright colours are a nod to the Scottish colourists whose works are among my favourite pieces of art as well as big influences.
Sold unframed for easier transportation, a dark one would set this work off beautifully (can be arranged so please enquire).
