My New book is titled 'Scottish Landscape Painting' and depicts a selection of work completed between 2009 and 2011. Alongside these images are a selection of my 'instagram' shots. Instagram is a photo sharing app for the iphone. I use instagram to document daily activities around the studio, in galleries and on location. In the book you are able to get not only great full colour images of the final paintings themselves, but an insight into my sketchbook work, inspirational photographs from my travels, and work in progress shots from the studio.
I would recommend Blurb books to anyone looking to record colour images in a book format. Their print to order method means books will be more expensive than 'off the shelf', but they're still surprisingly affordable for the quality. This latest one of mine retails at around £27 for softcover and £34.50 for hardback. The book is 7 inch square and its 120 pages are printed on premium paper and full colour.
You can get a virtual look at 15 of the pages using the widget above.
Limited copies of the book will be available at the preview of my Solo exhibition in Hamilton on the 30th September
