Ness of Brodgar 2020 Plein Air Oils

The Watchstone is Bored

Original plein air oil painting, 2020 Ness of Brodgar 13×18 cm. Proceeds will be donated to the Ness of Brodgar. Price listed includes shipping. This is what everyone sees when they first seek out the Ness of Brodgar digs in the summer. It seemed like the right place to start with this year’s season cancelled due to COVID. The Watchstone never wavers, nor does that blue house!

£125.00

At the Digger’s Rest

Original plein air oil painting, 2020 Ness of Brodgar 13×18 cm, Proceeds will be donated to the Ness of Brodgar. Price has shipping included. The next view I was drawn to was 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.

From Trench T and Beyond SOLD

Original plein air oil painting, 2020 Ness of Brodgar 15 by 15 cm, Proceeds will be donated to the Ness of Brodgar. Price listed has shipping included. Another day the wind suddenly came up and brought rain clouds. I shielded over by the caravan opposite Lochview. Trench T spoil heap and that blue house just peaked over the view of the Standing Stones and the Watchstone.

The Garden Stones Stand at Lockview

Original plein air oil painting, 2020 Ness of Brodgar 15 by 15 cm, Proceeds will be donated to the Ness of Brodgar. Price listed has shipping included. The two standing stones in the garden of Lochview are easily passed by due to their familiarity to us parking in this field. BUT, there is a lilt and a colour that is engaging.

£95.00



The Tyres Rest

Original plein air oil painting, 2020 Ness of Brodgar 20 by 20 cm, Proceeds will be donated to the Ness of Brodgar. Price listed has shipping included. 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, the blue of the Loch Harray was brilliant on this sunny day.

£95.00

Stenness Stones Framed!

Original plein air oil painting, 2020 Ness of Brodgar 13 by 18 cm. Proceeds will be donated to the Ness of Brodgar. Price listed has shipping included. How could I not add a close up view of the Stenness Stones?

£95.00

Swans at the Loch Across the Ness

Original plein air oil painting, 2020 Ness of Brodgar 13 by 18 cm. Proceeds will be donated to the Ness of Brodgar. Price listed has shipping included. 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.

£95.00

Across From the Dig

Original plein air oil painting, 2020 Ness of Brodgar 13 by 17 cm. Proceeds will be donated to the Ness of Brodgar. Price listed has shipping included. 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.
