A panorama of me painting at Glen Coe and Rannoch Moor
I was struck that day by the colours in the sky. The vibrant, yet dramatic blues and greens made this not only a joy to experience, but also to paint. The moor was used as a filming location for both Outlander and Harry Potter and I can see why.
A wintry day in Glasgow Green
Peering down the promenade towards the Nelson Monument, with the People’s Palace dusted in snow to my left and paintbrushes to my right, this was a day for painting in Scotland. Though my fingers did not thank me for it (the cold that day was biting) painting some of Glasgow’s most iconic scenes in the snow was well worth it.
Painting in the Maldives
I don’t always paint in the cold. The drama of the clouds that day drew me in. Combined with the tropical green hues of the foliage casting jagged shadows on the ground, it made for a scene that I could not resist. The weather helped too.
A day at Loch Lomond
Many have fond memories of visiting Loch Lomond as a child. Often considered the boundary between central Scotland and the highlands, Loch Lomond makes for a great day trip from Glasgow. This was a fresh and windy day that changed with the cloud cover, so I tried to capture this temperamental, transient beauty with my brush strokes and palette.
