About The Artwork

Light blue skies and rust brown rushes, a soft pastel toned landscape from the Isle of Orkney in the north of Scotland. The image was made at a small loch (lake) beside the The Ring of Brodgar, the most famous and oldest of the standing stones in the UK. For thousands of years, these huge monoliths have stood overlooking this little lochan. Standing on a serene morning at the edge of the water, with the swans taking flight, it seems no wonder to me that ancient people felt this place was so special. A rustic neutral tone images that is soothing and calming yet has a story and a history. This is a single image made in the camera using subtle movements as I take the picture. As I make these abstract landscapes I have an in my mind an idea of how the image will look but each time the results are exciting and new. I was drawn to the fabulous silver colour of the water around this island and I love to bring out this fresh, calming atmosphere in my picture. Printed at 44 x 44 inches including a 2 inches white border with the signature, edition number and title under the image. Available in other sizes and on paper. Printed on Canson Arches Aquarelle, one of the most beautiful papers I have ever worked with! Canson Arches Aquarelle has history of this paper goes back centuries. It has a soft structure like a watercolour paper that enhances the image creating a softness and warmth like a watercolour painting. Arches paper was used by Picasso, Ingres, Chagal, Miro and many other artists. They have been making paper and canvas for photography since this art began over 150 years ago. Canson are Eco Friendly - they purchase paper pulp for their materials only from forests managed in a sustainable way which also makes them pretty special.

As a professional photographer I travel often to the islands of northern Scotland to make my images in places that provoke a profound emotional reaction. The colours, the textures, the wildness of the places and the history are all intertwined in a fascinating, and often bewildering melting pot of sensation that forces me to make art. After moving many times to get to where I should be, I now live on top of a cliff at the northern end of the Isle of Skye. Skye is a large and very beautiful island in the far north of Scotland; a place of inspiration, myth and legend. The beauty of the landscape draws artists and walkers, photographers and lovers of Nature like a magnet, and I am likewise smitten. Skye has a ruggedness and intense green hills that would make anyone pick up a camera or a paintbrush. My work has moved through variations on a theme of movement and colour. Whether the camera moves or I move or the landscape moves it is all the same. Colours, moving blending and soaking into one another create a sense of playfulness, the feeling you get when the wind is in your hair on a bright sunny day. More and more I wonder if there is any end to how one can capture the colours, the lines and the essence of a place. In my studio today, the bright green Hill of the Red Fox is shrouded in a light mist, the wind is howling and the clouds are moving quickly across the hills. It is a scene that makes my heart sing. I hope my work conveys some of the joy I feel when I see these colours, the harmony and the wind singing through it all. It is at least a quest that, hopefully, will last a lifetime.
