Paintings and Field Drawings, New Zealand and Scotland

During the years I lived in New Zealand, especially on Great Barrier Island, and during several trips to the Hebridean islands of Tiree, Mull, Aran, Seil and Luing off the western coast of Scotland, I sat on sandy beaches or on rocks or on damp moor-land to paint and draw many of these sketches. Sometimes I began a painting in the field and finished it later in the day when I'd returned to where I was staying.
