Oil Sketch of Pine Trees - Painting of Scots Pines in Caledonian Forest

Scots Pines  8x10ins      Oil on Gesso - board          

Oil sketch, painted on location at one of the small pockets of ancient Caledonian Forest that still exist in the Sidlaw Hills. This forest once covered the whole of Scotland. Painted fairly directly in opaque oil.

With permission from the buyer of this work I quote from her e-mail to me confirming the safe arrival of this work -

“The Pines were in my mailbox today - How can something so small be so strong?

As subdued as it is, it is full of life.
Maybe that is something a painting has that a print or woodcut or photo or
stencil could never - the fresh evidence of the maker, your hand & thought
world - only then & there.  Perhaps why I am more drawn to your sketches
than the more 'assembled' paintings - like that super blue & yellow tiny sky
study at the top of the landscape painting page.  Wow.

The website was well-organized and friendly - it gave me an opportunity to browse the artwork at my leisure, with your really helpful and interesting comments and text leading the way.  The site created a context for the artwork that made it more appealing and accessible.  Five stars out of four - you made it seem like a personal exchange, even if it was trans-Atlantic.”
