I love to paint outside. I use a subtle palette, hoping to capture the mercurial weather, light and moods of the Isle of Skye. I like to portray the feeling of Skye through an intuitive response to the changing landscape and its colours. I often paint in the same places at different times of the day, watching the changing days and seasons. My style of painting is to capture the scene in a single session with no reworking. Rhythms, tides, seasons and shorelines infuse my work. Being within the landscape, feeling the elements while seeing my surroundings change, produces, I hope, the sense of the particular moment in all my work.
