Southerness Lighthouse. Acrylic on paper. 270mm x 180mm.
A case of the subject matter dictating technique with this one. I've been looking at some of the early travel posters produced by the rail companies during the 1920's and 30's. Deliberately decorative rather than overly realistic, this is my attempt to recreate the nostalgic feel of those early posters.
One of Scotlands oldest lighthouses, I've birdwatched here in the winter and explored the rock pools with my children in the summer.
Good news in the post today as I received confirmation that my Linocut of Gordale Scar (see previous posts) has been selected for exhibition in the Artists Open Show at Leeds City Art Gallery. The exhibition opens on 26th July and runs until 31st August 2009.
