This drawing was inspired by a family walk on a beach in Ayrshire, south-west Scotland, in January. I wanted to capture the reality of trips to the beach in Scotland, often when the weather is cold but crisp, with beautiful light but everyone wearing their coats and hats. I wanted to try making a drawing on a hard surface, to see what the results would be like. So this drawing is made on board coated with acrylic gesso. I then used acrylic inks, graphite powder and oil pastels (the latter mostly for the detail on the figures) to make the drawing. The final drawing is varnished with UV varnish to protect the colours and surface of the work. The board is mounted on a timber frame support so the picture stands proud of the wall and is ready to hang unframed (the edges are painted white), or could be framed if preferred.

I am an emerging figurative painter based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I am inspired by everyday experience of life and especially people and nature. My paintings often focus on nature and the way people connect with the natural environment in our modern world, especially those of us living in cities and towns. I think about how important the environment will become for all of us, and how it may affect our future lives. I record my ideas in sketches, photographs or plein air paintings, from which I often then develop larger works in the studio. I enjoy using the physicality and expressiveness of the materials - usually ink,acrylic paint or watercolour - to attempt to describe in visual language those strange or beautiful moments which always seem to elude capture in the written word. I am inspired by contemporary figurative artists such as Peter Doig, Marlene Dumas and Chantalle Joffe, but also by the Scottish tradition of painting including artists such as William Gillies and the Scottish Colourists, especially Cadell for his bold use of colour.
