Seascape paintings inspired by the Hebrides

Ann-Marie’s inspiration comes from the light and colours of the Hebrides, especially the islands of Mull and Iona. She is fascinated by the myriad of colours found in the sea, coast and landscape, and by the elusive qualities of light on water.

Ann-Marie paints thickly with oils and acrylics. She makes varied marks with painting knives, rags, hands and occasionally a large brush. Sand from the beach where she is working is often incorporated to give texture and reflect light. Her painting is emotional, capturing atmosphere, not reproducing a scene photographically. Colour and a lively surface are used to reveal the essence of sea and shore.

Ann-Marie’s inspiration comes from the light and colours of the Hebrides, particularly the islands of Mull and Iona, where she is surrounded by sea and the elements. Her painterly response is emotional, capturing the atmosphere and spirit of the place, which is felt not reproduced.
