Over the sea to Skye

The Isle of Skye, off the north west coast of Scotland, is where the artist John Bathgate lives with his wife Annie. A Scotsman, John was attracted to the wildness and ruggedness of the Skye coastline and it is not hard to see why from the photo below:

Here is one of John’s paintings:

My next charity shop find is a small watercolour of Polperro in Cornwall which I think John must have done a very long time ago perhaps when he was on holiday. On the back was an envelope with his details and some information about Polperro. His style has clearly developed and changed a lot since then.
