In August 2019 we spent three weeks in Orkney. The landforms were varied. As you travelled down from the higher lands, you saw the scarring of where peat had been harvested. These hills were often wrapped in mist and fog, and shafts of silken light penetrated through the meetings of the hills.
This light revealed hidden colours and textures of the land. The paintings try to capture this essence through the use of multiple underpainting, metallic paints and oil glazing.
