Tyres in a Row
Second day painting, 2 July 2021, and again I am back at the edge of Structure 10 looking eastwards.

Hearth of Structure 10
Holding this stretched canvas in my hand, I let the mood of the stones and sky take over. Beyond the curved wall, they have uncovered the fine hearth and it draws me in.

2020 Swans at the Loch Across the Ness
This 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 13 by 17 cm. Oil on canvas board FRAMED. Price includes shipping.
