THE FIELD OF THE YELLOW-HAIRED BOY

Acrylic on panel, 40 x 40 cm, 2022.

The paint-over painted over – all that gold gleaming. Many layers here. The field of the yellow-haired boy, Achtiltibuie, a place not in Assynt but in neighbouring Coigach, the name derived from Achd Ille Buidhe, or I have found Achadh a’ ghille bhuidhe.
