The Cuillin, Isle of Skye
On the ancient island of Skye there stands an impressive mountainous ridge, The Black Cuillin. The last Scottish clan battle on Skye was fought on the slopes of these mountains in 1601 between the Clan MacDonald and the Clan MacLeod. This remote place is idyllic in Summer but in Winter becomes a place of stormy seas and crashing waves. This image was made after a long drive down single track roads on this distant and sparsely populated island to reach a small beach only a hundred yards long where the Cuillin Ridge looks dark and mysterious.Local myths tell of how the Black Cuillin were created by the sun god, who burned the ground with so much heat that great blisters arose, and to this day they have never cooled enough to allow thick snow to settle.
This is the paper version, see other listing for canvas.
People often say that my images look like paintings because of the richness of the colours, the depth of the black and the texture of the materials I use. I work with Canson materials. Canson have been supplying artists for 450 years - Degas, Matisse, Warhol, Picasso, Ingres, Chagal, Miro.... an endless list of artists use their materials.
