Skipness Castle, East Kintyre + Summer Shore at Skipness

Dad was always interested in historical subjects, and his (yet to be published) book about Kintyre, ‘Almost an Island’, is written from a historical perspective, and illustrated with some of his paintings. When he was planning the illustrations, he realised that he had little or nothing to show Skipness and the castle in particular. The immediate result of this were these two pictures.
While not the most colourful or striking or Dad’s works, they have the gentle charm of some of his earlier watercolours, despite being rendered in oils. Indeed, the castle painting sold quickly to a lovely couple from Skipness.
