This is another painting from my show in London which ends tomorrow.  

It's of the beautiful white sands at Camusdarach on the Road to the Isles on the west coast of Scotland, on the way to Mallaig.  The sand really is pink and white!

In the distance you can see the islands of the Hebrides on the horizon.  The light is soft but bright, the sky has lots of little puffy fast-moving clouds, the long sweep of the sand is flat and wide and empty.  It's May, and the sun is out and it's nice and warm, but a light breeze is blowing.  The water is shallow as it comes in over the white sand, and it's an amazing Caribbean turquoise blue colour.

Everything is so clear that you have a real feeling of space and openness, and you have the whole place to yourself.
