One of my favourite places on Arran, Kildonan beach offers endless inspiration. Although I have painted Kildonan many times, this is the first time I have used graphite to capture the famous view of Ailsa Craig and Pladda.

It was a cold February day, and leaving self-isolation from having Covid, Kildonan beach was the first place I thought to go. The light on that day was spectacular and the sea was glistening. I decided on a graphite study to capture the moody and atmospheric light.
