Above, three paintings for the Limetree Gallery in Bristol for their upcoming Christmas Exhibition. I’m very happy to be showing again at the Limetree Bristol, which showcases some of Scotland’s leading landscape artists. If you’re interested in any of these paintings, please contact Limetree Gallery on their website:

In this series I’m trying to capture the mood of changing light at dawn and early sunset. The term ‘gloaming’ – used to describe a particular pre-twilight Highland light, sounds romantic and it is quite magical. It’s a light that makes things slightly difficult to see;  a sort of subdued glow. I think I’ve maybe captured it in ‘Early Evening, Ardban’. Dawn on the west coast, looking out to sea, usually appears misty with suffused light since it’s coming from the east – colours are softened and low contrast – very tranquil.

These three paintings are worked up from sketches I made this year while at Ardban in Applecross, Sanna bay and Ardtoe beaches in Ardnamurchan – beautiful, remote places on the west coast of Scotland. I couldn’t resist a hint of chimney smoke from Ardban cottage, we had great times around the fire! Here are a few photos from my stay there in August …

‘Ardban’ – exhibition launch

My new series for a solo exhibition – ‘Ardban’ – launches on Friday 18th October at the Limetree Gallery in Fortwilliam (not to be confused with Limetree Gallery Bristol for whom I’m creating new works for their Christmas exhibition this year!).

A few photos to show framed painting and to show scale …

 

I look forward to traveling up to Fortwilliam for the exhibition launch – all welcome to attend, it’s open to the public and starts at 7pm, 18th October (exhibtion continues to 30th November).

The address is Lime Tree An Ealdhain Gallery, The Old Manse, Achintore Road, Fort William, PH33 6RQ.
