Applecross, Wester Ross, The Highlands
The Applecross series of paintings are based on photos and memory. The sketchbook that evolved over a month or so after the visit, is full of the colours and textures of the coastline and surrounding landscape. Drawing, painting and collage are used to capture the rugged coast, open skies and endless views. The resulting paintings are an interpretation of the sketches, and the subject allowed a freedom to use the paint in a more expressive way, utilising a more natural palette of colour than usually employed.
Please read my blog - Work in Progress, Applecross, Wester Ross - for further details on the creative process.
Many original pieces from this series, using acrylic on hardboard and board, are available to buy from this website through this link here.
