Sanna Bay – Paintings and Video

Paintings on exhibition at the Resipole Gallery in Ardnamurchan

I mentioned a while ago that my friend, musician Donald Ferguson, might compose a piece for guitar to accompany my recent paintings of Sanna Bay in Ardnamurchan, and here it is! (links to paintings below video) …

The atmosphere and mood Donald creates here is entrancing – from the impetus of traveling through beautiful scenery from Glencoe to the Ardnamurchan peninsula, to the peace of arriving at Sanna Bay on the farthest west coast of Scotland.

Here are the links to the two galleries exhibiting these new works – you can contact them there with any queries …

These are for the Resipole Gallery exhibition which opens 17th May this year.

Sanna Bay

‘Sanna Bay (sea shallows)’. Mixed media on 14×11″ wood panel. Rose Strang 2019

‘Sanna Bay (teal water)’. Mixed media on 14×11″ wood panel. Rose Strang 2019

Today’s paintings of the wonderful Sanna Bay in Ardnamurchan. I’m quite happy with the water effect in Sanna Bay (shallow water) which doesn’t really show up in a photo – a bit of underlying texture and colour then a shallow glaze of turquoise with varnish. The painting directly above ‘painted itself’ as they say – always a good thing as it feels like I’m getting into the flow of this series of Ardnamurchan.

The exhibition of these paintings will be at the Resipole Gallery – a three person exhibition which launches on the 17th May. I’m going to take a trip up there for the opening, also for more painting.

Today’s paintings

P1010463 P1010453 P1010466I acquired a few smaller canvases this weekend so decided to experiment today.

The painting on wood is on top of a painting of Moffat from last year which I didn’t like so ended up using as a pallete (why waste all those interesting colours I thought) so I’ve just enhanced it.

I’m quite happy with the mood of the larger square work – a sort of ‘gloaming’ or half light. They could all do with a bit more definition though so I’ll work on them tomorrow.

I can see various ideas emerging from the painting in the middle so will have a think..
