(NB All these paintings are now SOLD)


These paintings were created as a series of works all based at the same location, a rocky beach adjacent to Culzean Castle, in Ayrshire ( in the Sout West Coast of Scotland), a place I knew well from my child hood.  I wanted to capture the reality of a family walk on the beach in Scotland in January - the crisp clear light but with everyone wearing coats and hats. I am most interested in watching the children as they engage with the environment - often entering a "flow" state in which they are oblivious to the goings on around them as they are immersed in an inner world.    

"At the Beach", Acrylic & water-based oil, on board, 80 x 35cm (SOLD)

Older Works (2015/16)


This painting was inspired by a woodland walk to a waterfall in Golspie, a small village near Brora in Sutherland (in the Scottish Highlands). The wooden boardwalk meandered through overhanging leafy green trees which created a beautiful atmosphere and light.  


This a large painting (100 x 100cm) on canvas, painted with acrylic underlayers and then water-based oil paint on top, giving an interesting textural surface with some sheen.
