Skye & Raasay 18x26cm Print


Inspired by my recent trip to the Isle of Skye and the Isle of Raasay, I wanted to capture these 2 islands combined. The lower colour panel has been painted in a muted heather tone, blended with soft mauves to represent the abundance of Heather on these 2 islands. The upper panel of sage green, represents the land, but mainly the exclusive marble known to Skye. In the centre you have the Cuillins, painted in genuine hematite. A curlew in mid flight, these birds are found on these 2 islands & are on the red list!!! Lastly we have an ammonite-moon with a cloud map in the middle of Skye and Raasay.

You can also purchase illustrated giftware in these designs, and the original version may still be for sale.

I paint these wildlife pieces in my 280+ year old English cottage. My paintings are handmade using high pigmented watercolours to achieve a statement piece of artwork.

Caring for your piece of artwork isn't hard, but bear in mind, if you decide to place your piece in a brightly lit room with a lot of natural light then it will inevitably fade over time.

I believe that pieces of art and gifts should not be defined by monetary value. Instead, they can be defined by sentiment, memories and love. You as the recipient or even if this is for a gift have something to treasure forever without having to pay a fortune for a piece of artwork.

Unmounted and unframed.
