'St Kilda Appearing'

MEDIUMOils and acrylic on canvas

This a version in oils of a small pen and ink sketch of the Eastern approaches to St Kilda done shortly after a return visit there some three years ago. The work is informed by a number of local Orkney landscapes painted recently under the umbrella title of “Consideration of a Landscape’ and brings out the resemblance of the sea to the dips, folds and hollows of a typical Orkney farming landscape…albeit rendered extremely freely.
