Paintings at the 20/21 British Art Fair

I'm going to have a selection of new paintings at the 20/21 British Art Fair at the Royal College of Art in London at the beginning of next month. 
Here's a couple of them...

Bluebells at Camusdarach (Oil on linen, 32 x 48)

Gorse in Evening Light, Traigh (Oil on linen, 32 x 48)

These beautiful big canvasses are of the pink and white sands at Morar, on the west coast of Scotland, looking out towards the islands of the Hebrides.  

The sands were empty, and stretched out in beautiful big sweeps, with gorgeous turquoise-coloured sea.  There was the most amazing light, but it was pretty chilly though!

Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the fair champions Modern British art, and runs from 12 - 16 September, with my paintings being exhibited with Duncan R Miller Fine Arts.  

The Royal College of Art, next to the Royal Albert Hall, is arguably 'the spiritual home of British art', and an ideal setting to see work by the great names of the 20th century, many of whom are former students: Bacon, Freud, Frink, Frost, Hepworth, Hockney, Hodgson, Lanyon, Lowry, Moore, Nash, Piper, Riley, Scott, Spencer and Sutherland.  It's well worth a visit.

  1. These both look fantastic - I would love to see them "live", in all their colourful glory. They are big paintings, too, and I expect they will look great at 20/21. Unfortunately I won't get to the exhibition this year, but I wish you all the best with it.

  2. Thanks for that! Yes, I thought such beautiful scenery needed a really big, bold sweep of a painting.

    Sorry you won't be able to make it to the Fair - maybe next time.
