This was a painting I drew out en plein air in pencil looking across to the Island of Scarp on the Huishinish Beach on the Isle of Harris. It was a spring day, there were lots of little wildflowers in the grass called 'machair.' I was parked up in a motorhome in 2007. then, the clouds opened up and it started to rain, so I never got a chance to finish it and paint in the colour. Then, one day in 2011, I decided to try and finish it from memory and my own imagination. I sat in my motorhome parked on my car park and happily and successfully finished it, with the final touch of splashing in the poppies with the machair.
