Eiders and Goldeneye on a big sea

‘Eiders and Goldeneye ‘ — on a big sea. Inspired by flocks of eiders and goldeneye seen off the coasts of the Isle of Lewis and mainland Orkney.  The seas at both these locations are awesome and I wanted to create that depth in the height of the waves and into the distance in this large oil painting.

Oil painting on Gesso board

Colin takes the presentation of his work very seriously! The entire picture is created from scratch.
He lovingly prepares each Gesso board to conservation standards, and uses hand-made oil paints from a specialist supplier. He also builds each individual frame specifically to complement the painting, and often finishes the frame with special wax varnish which he mixes himself. Some of the frames will have gold leaf applied to further enhance the effect.


Painting size approximately = 500 x 730 mm.

Price includes framing and delivery to a UK address.   On Exhibition at Resipole Studios on Ardnamurchan please contact them.
