Product story

Whenever she is working outside, Barbara Rae RA responds to what she sees in her sketchbooks. Richard Cork draws on interviews with the artist to examine how she sketches to connect with a subject. Introduced by Gareth Wardell and thematically arranged to reflect Rae's particular interests.

The limited edition print Skipness evolved from studies on the peninsula of Kintyre on the west coast of Scotland.

"Skipness evolved from studies on the peninsula of Kintyre on the west coast of Scotland. I was drawn to this area because of its proximity to Kilmartin, which has the most important concentration of Neolithic and Bronze Age remains in mainland Scotland, spanning 5,000 years."
