Nebbifield is a Devonian Sandstone cliff approximately 270 metres high located to the west of Foula. Facing south, the cliff is lit by the early afternoon sun hence the luminescent nature of this painting.
With a population of about 30 people, Foula is one of the United Kingdom’s most remote permanently inhabited islands. The name Foula derives from Old Norse Fuglaey meaning bird island. The island is about 20 miles west of Shetland and measures about 2.5 by 3.5 miles. The island has a dramatic form and boasts some of the most spectacular cliffs in the UK.
