Scottish Landscape

Melvaig, Wester Ross

This is number one in what I hope will be a series of landscapes inspired by my trip to the Scottish Highlands in July. The first piece is an ink and coloured pencil study of the hillside at Melvaig which is about nine miles from the little town of Gairloch. I'm now in the process of translating that into an oil painting and have so far completed the underpainting using white and burnt umber to create a monochromatic rendering.

Ink and Coloured Pencil, 16 x 12 inches

Oil on Canvas, 24 x 18 inches
