Shetland landscape painting

As a break form painting by myself, I am currently enjoying attending a painting evening class, with the lovely artist – Heathter Wilson. The theme for the 8 week course is landscapes and we have been given a beautiful photo of a landscape with and orange and purple sky, reflecting in water, on the island of Yell, Shetland. I was excited to see that was our subject and could not wait to get to the painting stage! I have chosen to paint the final piece on plywood board as prefer it to paper. We are currently half way and I cant wait to show you the final piece!

Now on the final week – here is my painting, ready to frame.   50 x 40 cms

My story of becoming an artist definitely begins with the garden.- Highlands. I designed and created a garden from the 1 acre waste ground surrounding our house, which is on a challenging steep slope, with fantastic views. I started the same way as I would any piece of artwork and looked at the size, shapes and textures choosing certain colours of plant combinations to fit the layout. I had some previous experience growing and caring for plants, so knew which conditions suited which plant type.
