‘I discourage any elaborate drawing-in of the motif to be painted, either with pencil, pen or brush. This produces a fear of the pigment or paint; a kind of dry, joyless “working up to the edges,” and leads subsequently to a kind of “colored drawings”.’ — John F. Carlson, Carlson’s Guide to Landscape Painting, page …
It’s only taken me 10 years to go up the path in the bit of the Uig woodland that follows the River Rha rather than the River Conon. Why I haven’t been before is hard to put into words: I knew there was a waterfall there, but I wasn’t ready for it yet, I was …

Commission a Painting
I enjoy the challenge of commissions and am happy to discuss possibilities, whether you’ve seen a painting you like but it’s no longer available, you’re after a particular size or dominant colour, want an amalgamation of favourite elements from different paintings of mine, wish for a painting featuring your house/location, etc. Another alternative is to have first option on my next painting in a particular series. I also do commissions for wirework and my wearable art.
Prices of commissioned paintings are the same as my other paintings, a 20% deposit may be required. How long it takes depends on what else I’m doing and the size of the painting, but usually between a fortnight and eight weeks.
Email me, or or we can arrange to meet in Skyeworks Gallery for a discussion if you’re on-island.
