First sale on Etsy

At last! My first sale from my Etsy shop.

Arran, looking towards Kintyre
Acrylic on canvas, 24cm x 30cm


I painted this view earlier this year from photos I took on a holiday a couple of years ago to the Isle of Arran, off the south-west coast of Scotland. The view is looking towards Kintyre on the Scottish mainland. Kintyre is a 40 mile peninsula stretching out across the North Channel, towards Northern Ireland. The painting has been bought as a Christmas present.


Also, I have spent the morning hanging my exhibition, which starts this Monday. It's great to see all the paintings hanging together.

Wow, this is gorgeous...you really are a incredible artist. Love the color, light and technique.

Thanks Kate. Although I love painting watercolours, I do like to switch to other media, particularly acrylic and pastel. Stops me from getting blasé about my work and encourages me to interpret my subjects in different ways.
