Sandwood bay a coastal seascape landscape painting, inspired by a remote and isolated 1 mile long sandy beach in the far North of Scotland accessible only by foot or boat, with a large thin sea stack, known as Am Buachaille or the shepherd towering above the waves.
In this painting I have used only black and white monochrome tones on a lightly textured canvas, as I thought this would be the best way to represent the tranquil atmosphere of this lonely bay.
I like the way it reminds me of a black and white photograph, where the atmosphere is conveyed only through the composition and contrast of the tones.
24" x 24" canvas on board in a square profile white limewashed wood frame
Also available as professionally printed fine art giclee prints 12" x 12" or 20" x 20" on textured watercolor style paper.
Other custom sizes and surfaces are available to order.
Sandwood Bay is managed by the John Muir Trust who protect this fragile area for all of us to enjoy, below is a short video that may give you a better idea of this remote and special place that inspired my painting.
