Across the Howe Towards Glen Esk,
produced in a limited edition of 300, captures the
Howe of the Mearns in early Summer. The view is
from the Garvock Hill - a spot known locally as the
'Three-Cornered Woodie' - looking West over the
Howe towards Laurencekirk and Fettercairn.
In the foreground, a tangle of roadside plants
stands before fields of ripening barley as the land
falls away down the Garvock. In the middle
distance, familiar field patterns - so characteristic of
the Mearns at this time of year - are present. Fields
of drying rape and uncut grass contrast with the
lighter tones of wheat and barley in a landscape
punctuated by dark lines of trees. In the miiddle
distance Denlethen - a wooded area which features
in most of my Winter landscapes.
At the heart of this composition is a strong sense of
place and a sense that the Grampians mark the
beginning of a landscape that is essentially
Highland and quite different from the Howe.
