‘Towards the Mamores, a showery summers day’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2014, 76 x 23 cm

Catalogue number: 319
Price: £1250 including P&P within the UK

About this painting:

I often say to people that I see the landscape very much in terms of pattern.  This painting is based on a day we had walking the hills above Glencoe when the broken cloud cover gave a constantly changing patchwork of light, shade and colour.   This is definitely one of my more abstract Scottish landscape paintings but I think it captures my memories of the day very well.

328 'Approaching Stob Dubh, Glen Coe', Acrylic & Pastel, 2014, 80 x 80 cm

‘Approaching Stob Dubh, Glen Coe’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2014, 80 x 80 cm
Catalogue number: 328
Price: £2500 including P&P within the UK

About this painting:

We’ve walked the summits of Buachaille Etive Beag on several occasions and experienced them in different conditions.  On this occasion we were treated to a constantly changing view as thick cloud on the northern side of the hill regularly bubbled up and spilt over the ridge and summit ….before sinking back again.   However good a bright clear day in the hills is, it is these more changeable conditions that so often give the best and most exciting views.

346 'On Beinn Damh, Torridon', Acrylic & Pastel, 2015, 148 x 210 mm

 

‘On Beinn Damh, Torridon’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2015, 148 x 210 mm
Catalogue number: 346
Price: £455 including P&P within the UK

About this painting:

As much as I like to climb hills in reasonable weather, there are times when you just have to go even if there is a good chance that you’ll see nothing the whole day.  When we climbed Beinn Damh at the head of Loch Torridon the other year, this was very much the case.   The cloud was very low and not forecast to lift the whole day, but we were on holiday and just wanted to get out.  Nothing though, when it comes to Scottish mountain weather can be that exact and as we plodded along the broad stony ridge in thick mist…..everything suddenly changed.  Suddenly we could see the summit and our route ahead along the narrowing ridge …it was amazing.  We stood there with broad smiles on our faces and watched the scene for five or so minutes before the cloud once again enveloped the hill.  We hoped that it might clear again once we were at the summit and we sat in the cool damp murk for almost an hour waiting and hoping ….but the top never cleared during the rest of the day.  It was a great walk though and that five minutes when the cloud did clear made it very special indeed.

348 ' A January evening in the North Ayrshire Hills', Acrylic & Pastel, 2015, 30 x 30 cm

‘A January evening in the North Ayrshire Hills’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2015, 30 x 30 cm
Catalogue number: 348
Price: £750 including P&P within the UK

About this painting:

This quite abstract Scottish landscape painting is based on a scene I experienced while out walking in our local North Ayrshire hills ….above Largs.  We’d gone out on an exceedingly cold early January day the other year and planned quite a lengthy wander around some of the tops.  The snow however was deep and difficult to walk in and we never managed half of what we’d planned.  But it didn’t matter as the hills and views out over the Firth of Clyde were spectacular.  As we plodded our way back in the late afternoon, the sun dipped out to the west and for a short time the snow covered hills around us turned a rich coppery pink colour.  I tried to photograph the scene but the images didn’t do it justice…..so this painting is about my memories of those few minutes standing in the pink snow of the North Ayrshire Hills.

349 ' Winter afternoon, the Luss Hills', Acrylic &Pastel, 2015, 30 x 30 cm

‘Winter afternoon, the Luss Hills’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2015, 30 x 30 cm
Catalogue number: 349
Price: £750 including P&P within the UK

About this painting:

The two wee hills of Beinn Dubh and Mid Hill that sit on the west side of Loch Lomond above the village of Luss always make for a fine walk.  This more abstract little landscape painting is based on a view you see only if you descend from the main path, a short way from the small cairn marking the summit of Beinn Dubh.  The steep little gully collects snow and at times there can be a very large drift here and it is well worth the short steep little detour to see it.

350 'Below Canisp, passing hail shower', Oil on canvas, 2015, 80 x 80 cm

‘Below Canisp, passing hail shower’, Oil on canvas, 2015, 80 x 80 cm
Catalogue number: 350
Price: £2500 including P&P in UK.

About this painting:
I completed this painting last summer, just a few months after we’d done a magnificent circular walk over Canisp in Assynt.  The weather really wasn’t the best but we did experience some amazing conditions and views that day, although the high winds prevented us from reaching the summit alas.  It’s a very wild and ancient landscape surrounding this hill with huge areas of broken boulders, bare rock and rough grass and heather.  After descending from the broad ridge of the hill, we were caught in some really heavy and quite violent hail showers.  This piece is painted in traditional oil colour using thick paint applied with a very large horse hair house painting brush.

355 'Squall, on the edge of Rannoch Moor', Acrylic & Pastel, 2015, 30 x 30 cm

‘Squall, on the edge of Rannoch Moor’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2015, 30 x 30 cm
Price £750 including P&P within the UK

About this painting:

As anyone who reads my blogs will know, we walk bits of the West Highland Way quite regularly…..usually to get to or back from a hill.  I’m hoping this year to put together a series of images of paintings based on views from, or above this famous long distance path.  I have a number of works already completed, images of which could be included and this painting is one of them.

It is based on a view we had as we were walking back along the WHW between Ba Cottage and the Glencoe ski centre.  We had been walking the hills to the west of the path and were at the end of what had been a long day when we saw this heavy shower moving towards us across the edge of Rannoch Moor.

312 'Below Clach Lethaidh, winter', Oil on canvas, 2014, 80 x 80 cm

 

‘Below Clach Lethaidh, winter’, Oil on canvas, 2014, 80 x 80 cm
Catalogue number: 312
Price: £2500 including P&P within the UK

About this painting:

This was one of the first of my new oil paintings and was completed about eighteen months ago in 2014.  Like the more recent pieces, it was created using thick oil paint dragged into place using an old horse hair house painting brush.  The coarse nature of the brush gives the paint a much textured surface which I particularly like in this more abstract landscape painting.  The composition is roughly based on the view you get when looking across to the mountains of the Blackmount and in particular, the huge snow covered slopes of Clach Lethaidh.  This is a bold and quite striking piece that looks particularly good on a big wall with some space around it.

'Approaching Harris, a damp May evening'

‘Approaching Harris, a damp May evening’

‘Approaching Harris, a damp May evening’, Graphite on paper, 2013, approximately 125 cm x 85 cm
Catalogue number: 310
Price: £1120 including P&P in UK. This painting is supplied unframed and will be shipped, rolled.

About this drawing:
The title of this piece says everything really! This was the start of what was to be a very drich couple of weeks on Harris. We were sat in the cafe onboard the ferry from Uig to Tarbet, eating chips and supping a beer and looking out over the choppy seas. It was misty and damp and we were looking for our first sight of the islands. As I sat there I suddenly realised that the scene before me would make an excellent graphite drawing and I started this large piece on the dining table of the wee cottage we’d rented for the holiday. I’ve done a good number of these quite large graphite drawings ….but I think that this is my favourite.

'Early spring, above Drumochter'

‘Early spring, above Drumochter’

‘Early spring, above Drumochter’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2011, 80 x 80 cm
Catalogue number: 193
Price: £2500 including P&P in UK

About this painting:

I did this painting a few years ago after a wonderful walk up in the Drumochter Hills.  It was actually the day we reached the summit of our 100th Munro and to do this on a perfect late winter day made it very special.  The upper slopes of the hills were still well covered in snow and ice but further down this was melting back to create large patches of white against the sunlit hillside and glen below.  It was an amazing patchwork of light and colour and I’ve tried to capture something of it in this painting.

'Snow, rock and water, Harris, May'

‘Snow, rock and water, Harris, May’

‘Snow, rock and water, Harris, May’, Graphite on paper, 2013, 70 x 70 cm
Catalogue number: 304
Price: £695 including P&P in UK.  This drawing is supplied mounted but not framed.

 

About this drawing:

This was one of a number of drawings I did after our two week long stay on Harris back in May 2013.  It was officially our “summer” holiday but the weather had other ideas!  Amidst the many days of rain and high winds, we also had a day of snow!  This drawing was based on a view we had while walking in the hills the day after the snowfall.  The snow was thawing quickly and this stream was in spate…..the patterns of the white water against the rocks mimicking the patterns of the snow against the crags on the hills behind.

'Breaking mists, Isle of Arran'

‘Breaking mists, Isle of Arran’

‘Breaking mists, Isle of Arran’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2013, 30 x 30 cm

Catalogue number: 289

Price: Framed £750, Unframed £685

Region: Islands

 

About this painting:

We visit the Isle of Arran once or twice each year and it never ceases to amaze me how spectacular a place it is.  This small scene was based on a day we spent walking on Goat Fell when there was patchy low cloud drifting up Glen Rosa and then breaking over The Saddle into Glen Sannox.  Although it often shrouded Cir Mhor, the Witches Step and the other main Arran peaks, strangely it never filled in completely at the summit of Goat Fell …the highest peak on Arran.

‘West coast, Harris, May 2013’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2013, 30 x 30 cm

Catalogue number: 293

Price: Framed £750, Unframed £685

Region: Islands

 

About this painting:

Although much of the time we spent on Harris this year was wet, we did have several very fine days.  On one of these we spent the day visiting some of the wonderful beaches on the west coast of the island.  This slightly abstract piece is one of several paintings I’ve completed based on these fabulous beaches.

 'Snow shower, below the east ridge of Ben Lui'

‘Snow shower, below the east ridge of Ben Lui’

‘Snow shower, below the east ridge of Ben Lui’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2012, 80 x 80 cm

Catalogue number: 292

Price: Framed £2500, unframed £2350

Region: Southern Highlands

 

About this painting:

This is the latest painting I’ve created based on a trip we did to Ben Lui on a cold early spring day several years ago.  It was a day of occasional flurries of snow and varying light and it made a very dramatic scene.

'A winter morning, east of Drumochter'

‘A winter morning, east of Drumochter’

Ref: 211
Price: Framed £1250 , Unframed £1150. Contact artist for current availability

This painting is mounted and framed behind glass with a simple but stylish white gesso frame.  It can also be supplied with a mount only – please contact the artist for a revised price.

About this painting:
Region: Central Highlands
This painting is based on a very cold day I spent with my mate Guy the other year on the hills to the east of Drumochter Pass.   Once you’ve hauled yourself up the steep flanks of these hills from the road, it’s a high, bleak and very wild area of undulating moor.  Two of the higher bumps are classified as Munros and lie I guess, about four miles apart.  We walked the two ‘hills’ on a layer of snow that held your weight for an instant….and then gave way as you transferred your weight!  It was very hard work especially as we were walking for much of the day into a very strong and bitterly cold wind.  We were both exhausted by the time we got back to the car in the last light of the day and we both agreed that we might not return to these two hills ….but strangely enough we do both remember this very tiring day….it was a bit of an epic!

Price: Framed £2500, Unframed £2350. Contact artist for current availability

This painting is framed without glass in a simple but stylish 11cm wide pale cream coloured wooden frame.

About this painting
Region: West Highlands
This is one of my new 80 x 80 cm paintings and is based on a day when we watched cloud break off of the summit of a snow topped Beinn Toaig.  Painted with broad brush strokes this bold almost abstract piece does none the less well convey this very Scottish scene.
