An oil painting made from sketches done en plein air in the west coast of Scotland, near the beautiful island of Iona where the sea is a stunning turquoise colour if the sun is shining. I have made a series of works featuring this gorgeous traditional yacht which has an amazing hull shape and an extremely tall mast.
Thin glazes form the waves giving a feeling of light and movement while the darker sky speaks of a coming strong wind creating drama and a sense of adventure. Personal experience of sailing in wild Scottish weather helps in my creation of these marine paintings.
