Arthur's Seat

Arthur's Seat

Oil on panel, 16"x10"
Whilst I was landscape painting near Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh, I was struck by the epic nature of the scenery. This provided the inspiration for this painting, an illustration based on the myth that Arthur's Seat could have been the site for Camelot. My goal was to inspire the same epic sense of scale and majesty in the viewer that I first experienced when looking at the real Arthur's Seat.
