Arisaig View

Materials: mixed media, acrylic, canvas

Height: 30 Centimetres; Width: 120 Centimetres; Depth: 2 Centimetres

Highly textured, panorama format, mixed media painting of the amazing view from the beach at Arisaig on the West coast of Scotland. In the distance is the distinctive skyline of Eigg and Rum. This painting will be a talking point in anyone’s home, with it’s much loved view of white sands, aqua sea and highly textured surface.

I start off the process by incorporating pieces of fabric and paper onto the canvas to create texture and interest resulting in a fully three-dimensional surface. These scraps have particular meaning to the place or things that were going on in my life at the time. I see this as a form of catharsis as they will become obscured by the layers of paint and eventually become meaningless.

The edges of this canvas are painted so it does not need a frame.
