As artists we are always developing. I started this site some years ago to monitor my progress at art classes. Some areas have improved faster than others and I expect this to continue to be an interesting journey. Constructive comments are always welcome. Steve.

Nov - Dec 08 some works

"Bridge" Gouache 12"x16"

"Stalker Castle" Acrylic 16"x7" on board. This is how I think it looks through binoculars from the hillside a couple of miles to the south east. I have a photo I took a few years ago from the road below the hillside. Not as high up of course so I've moved the islands down a bit in this painting. Now the firs have grown taller its not so easy to see the castle from that bit of road.

An imaginary scene. Gouache 16"x12" Painted in layers.

"Loch Creran and Ben Sgulaird" Acrylic 16"x12"
