This is a mixed media piece inspired by a beautiful sunset at Marwick Head on Orkney. For this painting I used old book pages (a very old copy of Wuthering Heights which was falling apart anyway, in case you're interested!) collaged on the canvas and round the sides which I then painted black and painted the scene over the top of this using an impasto style with acrylic paint. I used both palette knives and sponge applicators to achieve a very textured surface and add interest to the piece.
This is a small canvas which can be hung as it is or can also stand upright on a mantelpiece for example so does not need to be framed.
