Artist's description:

Title: Heading Out

This listing is for the fine art paper print version but it is also available as a canvas.

This image was made on the glorious evening of Midsummer last year. Midsummer is the day when the day light is at it's longest for the entire year. The Midsummer in the Minch race from Portree to Gairloch is a yearly event and a difficult course taking the yachts up around the Shiants, small islands in The Minch, a wild stretch of water between Skye and the Outer Hebrides. In a flurry of white sails and whipped dark blue sea they set off. They turned about in Portree Harbour for some time before the line up and as soon as the starter gun rang out the four yachts shot past the yellow marker and out to open water below the cliffs.

As viewers, we raced along the clifftops to catch glimpses of the yachts as they sped along the Sound of Raasay on the East coast of the Isle of Skye, losing them just as they headed out into the Minch in the late evening sunshine.

About My Work
I use luxury papers and canvas materials that hold their colours for a lifetime! I do all my own printing, having spent years learning this skill I prefer to maintain control of the colour representation at all stages to ensure you get a truly handmade image.

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 Sizes
This is available on canvas or luxury ChromaLuxe. I can also do custom sizes, please just get in touch.

Framing Options
If you would like advice on framing please let me know.

Once ready, the canvas or print is carefully wrapped in acid free tissue then shipped in a sturdy art tube to ensure safe delivery.

Materials used:

Canson Arche Velin 315gsm fine art paper and Epson Non Fade Inks
