This powerful composition centres on the light glimpsed through a sea arch - a favourite motif of mine. This little patch of light is a magnet to the eye - the whole composition is constructed around it. Bow Fiddle Rock is a real place near Portknockieoff the north-east coast of Scotland. I looked at a lot of different images of this natural feature, then created my own interpretation that I hope distills what's important and visually exciting about it. I don't usually show shadows in my work but this time I did to emphasize the strong back-lighting of sunset. The extraordinary geology of the rocks gave me licence to use my pattern making techniques to represent the tilted strata.
I used rollers and dabbers to spread out the ink then made marks with a cloth and other tools. I built up layers of over-lapping colous by printing serveral times. I incorporated textures by impressing inked up wallpaper and fabric. I also used paper stencils to make the crisp edges.
