Seana Doherty has a passion for painting en plein air and for Harris.
Her August 2018 trip, where she painted outside every day and took thousands of photos to work on back in her studio in Kirkintilloch, was a dream fulfilled and has resulted in this exhibition.
While painting she was nearly blown off a clifftop in Northton, hailed on in Seilebost, rained on in Luskentyre and forced to paint looking out the window in Cluer, the rewards came in the unparalleled drama of the sky and seascapes.
There is something about the experience of braving the elements and the constantly changing light that gives you a deeper sense of a place. Some places stay with you and you find yourself trying to recapture them long after you have left; others need to be caught in the moment.
