Ardvasar Bay, Isle of Skye

Ardvasar Bay, Isle of Skye


Canvas size 14 x 10 inches

Framed size 19 x 15 inches. Frame colour "Moles Breath" by Farrow and Ball, with a white slip.

This work is a rapid plein air study of morning light breaking through shower cloud over the hills behind Mallaig. I have made several similar studies over the years and this is so typical of the Islands.

The picture was painted from just outside my studio in Ardvasar Bay. The low tide had left sandy areas and pools amongst the seaweed covered rocks.
