Overall frame size is 440mm x 320mm x 50mm deep.

Staffa takes its name from the Old Norse for stave or pillar island. The island is of volcanic origin and is surrounded by cliffs made up of distinct basalt column forms. The island is famous for Fingal’s Cave but this painting depicts the nearby ‘boat cave’ a little further round. Painting the basalt columns in an immediate and casual manner was achieved using a wide brush in a series of single, affirmative brush strokes.
