painting with the light of the north

  picture by Ivor MacKay

The Sea Cliffs of Mangersta
Uig, Isle of Lewis
acrylic on canvas, 16″ × 12″
print available

The sea cliffs and beach at Mangersta are battled by huge Atlantic breakers endlessly.  It is a place of great beauty and boasts a nice beach also.  It is a favourite place of mine to paint due to the energy of the sea and its currents and the ruggedness of the Lewisian gneiss cliffs.  This painting was completed after visiting a Joan Eardley exhibition in Edinburgh.  Her work is energetic and very inspiring.
