This highly textured original painting was inspired by travels through the north of Scotland during spring when the snow is melting and the waterfalls are in full flow. I am fascinated by the geology of the area and water has played a huge part in sculpting the landscape that we see, both in a glacial form and as flowing rivers. The highlands are wonderful combination of textures: jagged peaks and crags created as rock rubs against rock over eons, in contrast to the polished stoned, smoothed flat by flowing water or the soft green foothills and valleys covered with grasses and moss.

I use a variety of media in my work including oils, acrylics, watercolours and inks… basically anything that comes to hand! In this painting I have allowed the fluid paint to dribble over the textured surface and create it’s own patterns, reacting and interacting with other pigments to recreate the feeling of water flowing over a rocky surface.
