Artist's description:

This painting is one of a series of works I made in 2016 exploring images of figures on a rocky Scottish beach, in winter time. It features a family exploring among the sand and rocks. I am interested in the way people experience and connect with the natural environment in our modern age, especially children like my own who are growing up in the city.

It is painted in acrylic (underlayers) and water-miscible oil paint (top layers), on MDF board, supported at the back on wooden timbers (so the picture stands out from the wall, like a box canvas). Sides painted thinly in white acrylic paint, so the work is ready to hang (or could be framed, if preferred). The painting has a textured surface with a soft sheen and rich colour. It will be wrapped in acid free tissue, bubble wrap, and shipped in a cardboard box.

This painting was shortlisted for the National Open Art Competition 2016 (in the UK).
