Curve of Structure 12

Structure 10: The Path, The Curve

Across 12 to the Harray Loch

In 2011, I was troweling on the surface of Structure 12. It draws me every season as so much has been revealed. And the spoil heap on the left has grown so! Size 10 x 10 inches Oil on deep 1 1/2 inch canvas Price includes shipping. When purchased, I send a donation to the Ness of Brodgar Trust.

Structure 10 Alone

For a brief moment, all the archaeologists had left for a meeting. I just focussed on the background and the darkness of the tires. Under the black plastic, held down by the tires, are the areas not being dug this season. Size 10 x 10 inches Oil on deep 1 1/2 inch canvas Price includes shipping.

Bottoms Up…Diggers Below!

There was a moment when I was settling and was ready to start painting some stones, when I looked up and noted all the colours of the archaeologists’ clothing. I quickly tried to capture the contrast found in that moment Size 8 x 10 inches Oil on linen Price includes shipping. When purchased, I send a donation to the Ness of Brodgar Trust.

There My Be Paint on that Fallen Orthostat

Nearly at the end of the season, a bit of clay was scrapped off that horizontal orthostat and it seemed possible that there was pigment there. Read for news of that research to come.

Last Moments to see Struture 12 in 2021

The day started out fairly calm. Of course, I started painting as the wind picked up and there was a mad dash to cover Structure 12 in the black plastic and tires. I love the curve of wall looking west. Size 20 x 20inches Oil and mixed media on deep 1 1/2 inch canvas Price includes shipping. When purchased, I send a donation to the Ness of Brodgar Trust.

The Path Beside Structure 12 and Across the Hearth to the Hills of Hoy

It was during the last few days of the 2021 dig, that I bravely used longer canvases. It was great to have a larger space to cover and working fast with pigment sticks and pigmented charcoal became a very tactile addition to working.

2020 Ness of Brodgar Plein Air Paintings

2020 At the Digger’s Rest

This is the place where the diggers gather for lunch and breaks. The Art Hut was just to the left of it. This is a view from the roadside looking over the fence and the dyke to see the corner special seat for a person, key to the dig. Size 5 x 7 inches FRAMED oil on canvas board Price includes shipping. When purchased, I send a donation to the Ness of Brodgar Trust.

2020 The Tyres Rest

The grass was high around the main trench and often, I got caught up in it. While the black of the tyres were a somber sight in July 2020, the blue of the Loch Harray was brilliant on this sunny day. Size 9 x 9 inches Oil on canvas board FRAMED Price includes shipping. When purchased, I send a donation to the Ness of Brodgar Trust.

2020 Swans at the Loch Across the Ness

Last summer, the swans just dotted the water of the Harry Loch, like bits of foam. I just couldn’t paint black tyres, so sat aroun the side of the trench and painted the views that diggers have to look for. They spend so much time with their eyes to the ground.

2020 Across From the Dig

Hoy is always a different colour off in the distance. This day, it was soft and brownish and the Stenness Loch was soft as well. I was on the edge overlooking it all, and then I didn’t feel so bad about the quiet on the site. Size 6 x 8 inches FRAMED Oil on canvas board Price includes shipping. When purchase, I send a donation to the Ness of Brodgar Trust.
