I was advised to try oil painting to enable me to achieve detail in my artwork and this collection is a showcase for the oil paintings that I currently have for sale. These are currently exclusively landscapes and mountain paintings, but I intend to add other subjects as my artistic endeavours progress. I paint with Winsor and Newton Alkyd Quick Drying Oils and have recently tried Cobra Water Mixable paints, the latter take some time to dry and the alkyd oils are dry to the touch overnight. My oil painting of Carn Mor Dearg Arete,Ben Nevis has just been added to this gallery, its painted in Alkyd Oils. The latest addition is Ullswater from Glenridding, showing the head of the lake towards Hartsop and The Kirkstone Pass. New work just added of a vibrant An Teallach sunset, we get some dazzling sunsets in the Highlands, its just a question of being in the right place.
As with my watercolours and acrylic paintings I love to visit the areas I have painted in the Scottish Highlands, The Lake District and Snowdonia. I normally sketch and take photos and complete the landscape paintings in my studio at home.
