Please click image for full detail

This is a special work; a mountain and valley which features paint made from rocks I have sourced from walks in Scottish mountains. I have been collecting rocks for as long as I can remember; and more recently have been thinking of ways I can incorporate them into my paintings : putting a piece of the land back into the work ; literally!

With this piece, the darkest paint is made from ground slate, whereas the reds and ochres are actual Torridonian Sandstone. I have prepared these myself, selecting rocks which have different hues and working with them until I can paint with them.
