I’ve entered three of my Shetland charcoal landscapes for the April Boldbrush Art Contest.

As you may know, these charcoals were drawn on gorgeously textured hand-made paper during my recent residency on Shetland. Whenever I was out and about on the island and something caught my eye, I pulled over and started to work and coax the charcoal into the grain of the paper.

And so they’re now entered into this month’s art contest – I’d be delighted if you could vote for one or any number of them that take your fancy ;)

Simply click on the/each painting you’d like to vote for and then the Vote button on that page:

Melby Beach, Shetland


Whiteness Voe, Shetland


Towards Weisdale and Sandwater, Shetland


Thank you so much in advance :)
