I live and paint in the Scottish Borders village of Town Yetholm and my work relates mostly to the local landscape from the Bowmont Valley, where I live, out to the Northumberland coast. This painting is one of many where I am fascinated by the relationship of sky with hillside. The mood and atmosphere of the landscape changes constantly and in my paintings I attempt to capture “a moment in time”. This particular painting I hope gives a feeling of the last few minutes of light before the sky goes dark. In the studio my working method is almost always the same. I use a water based underpainting then work and rework the painting until the image becomes established. This can often take weeks to achieve but strangely it is occasionally immediate. This painting has a simple narrow frame but I am listing it as unframed thus giving the option to add a frame of choice or leave as is. Please refer to the insitu photograph.

I live and paint in the Scottish Borders village of Yetholm and my paintings relate mostly to the local landscape from our home in the Bowmont Valley to the Northumberland coast. Changing light and the effect of weather on the atmosphere and mood of my subjects are of great interest to me. In my work I use a water based underpainting then work and rework the surface with glazes of colour until the image becomes established. This can often take weeks to achieve but strangely it is occasionally immediate.
