This oil painting has just been completed on commission for a client.
Eilean Donan is located at the head of Loch Duich.
The painting is 36 inches by 36 inches which is my largest so far. The prospective client came through to Kirkcaldy, to see some of my paintings, in the flesh. I was only too pleased to show some art-works recently completed and some of Eilean Donan in particular. We had a chat about the castle and also the style, size and angles the client was interested in. I must have pressed all the right buttons because I was privileged enough to be entrusted with the task.
Over the next couple of weeks I sent about 20 pictures of the castle, with different angles, seasons and clock times. We discussed each by e-mail and also on the phone and from this I was able to mentally put together exactly what our client wanted to see in his painting.
The finished results you can see above, I am particularly pleased with how it turned out and more importantly, so is our customer.
Thank you xxxx it was a pleasure to paint for you.
