This contemporary Scottish art painting, in vibrant blue and orange colours, shows a couple of hard working fishing boats, moored up in harbour, leaning on the silt. It's the first of a looser style of work that I'm now producing - using a combination of mixed media and collage. 


I start with a blank canvas and scrape on loads of different colours. Then I add collage elements, including bits of some of my sketchbooks, and go on to make loads of different marks using oil pastels and acrylic inks and pens. 


Then I loosely draw on the image with the droppers of acrylic inks and go from there. Each painting evolves as I go. I start with a vague idea of an image, but the colour and textures lead on from one to the other, until the work seems finished to me.
