Acrylic on paper
From a series of intensive studies of this volcanic spur above the city of Edinburgh, visible from the artist’s studio. The landmark in the city’s Holyrood Park is only a stone’s throw away from all the hustle and bustle of the capital. Yet it stands in its own stillness, enduring for millennia far beyond our daily worries.
