'On Beinn Liath Mhor'

Back in August while I was working in Speyer, I received an email from Scotlandart.com inviting me to take part in a group exhibition of work by artists new to the gallery. They asked me for six medium sized pieces for the show that opens on 29th October. Ordinarily this wouldn’t have been too difficult – it giving me the best part of two months to get the work done. However, with my being in Speyer until early September and having to get work ready for both the Jolomo Awards finalist show and the Battersea Park AAF, this would make it quite a tight schedule.

I got the boards cut and primed while still in Germany and worked out and drew in the first three pieces. This was quite important as it meant that I could get straight down to work on my return to Irvine. These first three paintings are all 60 x 30 cm whilst the final three are just slightly smaller at 60 x 27 cm. Of the six paintings three are completely new images and the other three are new versions of previous paintings. Anyway, despite the rush I managed to complete all six pieces in time for the hand-in date last week and am now just looking forward to seeing them on the wall when we go to the gallery for the preview on Thursday 28th Oct.

Below are the six paintings.
