Stein is a wonderfully picturesque group of cottages on the Waternish peninsula of the Isle of Skye – the largest of the Hebridean islands off the west coast of Scotland. I come to Skye for painting about once a year and it is a mecca for artists, photographers, creatives and nature lovers of all types. Here, at Stein, I chose to paint some of the interesting things on the beach around this boat which was up out of the water. In the background, you can see the cottages which form the hamlet itself. Notice the palm trees which grow here due to the mild, gulf stream climate!
“Alll manner of useful boaty things”, was painted on site on 600g rough, mould-made Hahnemühle paper using Windsor and Newton watercolours paints. It comes mounted in a warm white passepartout to fit a standard frame size of 40x50cm.
