Towards Eigg and Rhum from Mallaig


Oh that is just beautiful Michael. Lovely!

I’ve only been a couple of times to this area Michael but I can see the attraction. There are some stunning vistas from that coastline. Love your sky and the rich foreground colours and tones, a little beauty Michael.

Thank you Sarah & Fiona. You are quick off the mark! Pleased you like it. I wondered if the sky was a bit overpowering but maybe not. Could have painted a clear blue sky but that would have been rather bland.

A cracker Michael. I think the sky really makes it, pleased you did not just do a clear blue sky.

So fresh, beautiful painting Michael.

Lovely, Michael.

This is SO good Michael, love that yellow bush (gorse?) in the foreground

David, Carole, Shirley and Paul - thank you so much. Heather - thank you too. I’m so pleased you recognised the gorse! That’s what it is meant to be 😎.

Lovely fresh watercolour Michael, with a super sky.

A beautifully balanced composition with that foreground yellow bush, giving the painting its lively, summery atmosphere. Also love the treatment of light in the sky Michael.

Fabulous, Michael, what an expression of a great Summer's day. Love the sky and those hazy islands.

Lovely painting, Michael!

Many thanks Stephen, Carole, Val-Irene, Willie & Cesare. Wasn’t totally sure I had got this one right so your enthusiasm has convinced me 😊.

Really great painting - the yellow gorse against the blue sky is stunning


Thank you Jon & Richard.

So beautiful, Michael - love the sky and the gorse!

Thank you Anne. Yes it is meant to be gorse - I tell not a lie …… gorsepel truth!

Hang on Studio Wall

A nice spot to be on the west highlands coast. One of my favourite places in the British Isles.
