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, hillside and the River Bowmont which runs through our village. 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 movement, energy and flow between sky, land and river. 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 traditional limed finish frame with white slip. Please refer to the insitu photograph.
