Inspirational Uig (pronounced U…ig) – August 2014

Eagles, deer, seals, white sand, azure skies, smoked salmon, hand dived scallops and a whole week of sunshine made a recent trip to the Isle of Lewis a very memorable and inspirational holiday.

With time to sketch and photograph (as well as building sand castles!) Uig, which is on the West side of Lewis, is an idyllic, quiet setting to discover the rocks, rock pools, beaches, seaweed and landscape for a new selection of paintings.

So the long drive (9hrs) to Ullapool, the three hour ferry crossing to Stornaway and the 1 hour drive to the cottage was duly rewarded by this remote and beautiful Outer Hebrides Isle.

My new paintings are a contemporary reflection on this stunning landscape
