Oil Paintings


You are here: HOMEOil Paintings

While I have enjoyed making large paintings, I am currently enjoying the fun of outdoor painting using small canvases. 

When I work inside my studio using a large canvas, I paint with “pigment sticks” on unstretched canvas. The oil sticks are blended on the canvas after being “crayoned” on the canvas. The colours and I flow in between the charcoal plan I began with. Clouds emerge and land slides into place. Light and colour slip into reflection. I love the freedom of letting the paint take me where I think I was heading.

I enjoy commissions and bespoke large sizes. There are challenges in changing the shape of the canvas and I like working on round or tondo and even triangle canvases. 

It was pure serendipity when I painted a 44 x 5 ft view of the Orkney island of Hoy. Due to the size of “Moonrise, Sunset, and Hoy in the Middle” has only been exhibited three times.  As one viewer expressed, “I have never been hugged by a painting before.”

I felt a bit like the creator when asked to create a “forbidden universe” for the play of the same name.

Most recently, as artist in residence at the Ness of Brodgar, I painted the “Homage to the Sondage in the Montage with some Debitage on the Side.” This was the feature piece of my solo exhibition at the Orkney Museum in 2018 and the window feature for Highland Park Whisky 2019.
