These sharp pinnacles of rock can be found on The Isle of Skye and have to be seen to be believed. I wanted the sky to be as dramatic as possible for this scene to add atmosphere and illuminate the pinnacle tip as if were reaching up to the heavens.
From a young age, I developed a fondness for wildlife and dramatic landscapes from spending lots of time in woodland around Horsham and visits to the South Downs. As I got older, my interest grew and trips to Snowdonia and The Lake District really cemented my love for the great outdoors, inspiring my art today. Capturing dramatic landscape scenes, often in moody weather; I paint using oils, in a bold, loose realism style.
