Feast, a taste of Skye

Over the past couple of months I have been very busy making a large commissioned piece of work for the Flodigarry Hotel on the Isle of Skye.
The owners of the hotel contacted me and asked if I could create an abstract piece using colours of food from their fantastic restaurant kitchen.

I began by visiting the kichens and taking lots of photographs of the food.
All  typically Scottish, fresh seafood, salmon, venison and fresh herbs  salads and vegetables

From these I decided I wanted to create a waterfall of colour cascading down the canvas.  The canvas size was much bigger than I usually work, 2 metres x 1 metre.

Work in progress... a very messy studio!

The paper fragments punctuated with reed like divides, ( Actually made from drinking straws set into moulding paste and covered with mulberry papers)
Finally the finished piece was revealed on Saturday night at a special party.

Feast, A taste of Skye.
