To quote "Undiscovered Scotland", "Dun Beag is a broch, one of around five hundred to be found across mainly the north and west of Scotland. Brochs were built in the last centuries BC and the first centuries AD and were circular in plan.....opinions differ as to their purpose. Some view them as primarily defensive structures,while others believe they were symbols of prestige and power...." After spending a while around this Broch, it just looked to me it was more of a defensive structure, designed to keep out attacking forces. Regardless, this Broch is very interesting and the view from the top of the mountain that it sits on is magnificent. I have a panoramic base image I am working on shot from this high view over Loch Beag that is breathtaking. This Broch is just another fascinating part of the wonderful Isle of Skye.

    I use MOAB Slickrock Metallic Silver 300 stock for all of my Giclée prints. This high-end metallic media adds lots of depth to the appearance of my work and features an exceptional reflective shine. This media highlights my artwork by creating an almost 3-dimensional look to my Giclée’s.

     

    I use Hahnemuhle Daguerre Canvas for all of my canvas work. This canvas media is a high-end matt-coated poly-cotton, fine art canvas with a fine, uniform surface texture. It produces clean, fresh colors, and the finest details.

     

    My Limited Edition Canvas Issues are collectable pieces that are created one at a time by hand involving several hours of individual hands-on work. I use a combination of photography, digital art, painting, varnishes, and embellishments to create a uniqueness in each piece that is different from every other piece. Each issue is signed, numbered, and the customer receives a Certificate Of Authenticity with their artwork.
