Northern lights...

                                                                                   Like many people, I am entranced by lighthouses - their isolated grandeur in often remote locations and also by the vision, ambition and engineering capability of their builders. When I came to Orkney I decided I would visit and paint as many of the lighthouses of Northern Scotland as possible. I've been doing this (slowly) for ten years so my approach and style has changed over time, and there are still a few to go...
