Each painting in this collection is based on a particular Harris Tweed swatch, the starting point limiting the pallet mixed from just these colours. As a result the landscapes resemble not just the purple, peaty rivers, vibrant turquoise of the seas, blindingly white beaches, and heathery moors but also the natural ingredients that went into dying the yarns.
