This was painted as a birthday present (50th) for a special friend. One of our favorite places is the Outer Hebrides, North Uist in particular.
The painting is looking south from the beach at Balranald, looking south to the mountains of South Uist. The breakers are shown coming in from the open Atlantic. I wanted to portray the power of the ocean and the delicate nature of the landscape, so used watercolour, with the waves, picked out in gouache.
