Duart Castle, Mull
by Francis Boag
35cm x 45cm
acrylic on paper
“I have painted Duart Castle many times and invariably from the same viewpoint. Unlike Joan Eardley who tied herself and her canvas down to capture the wild storms raging offshore at Catterline, I have to confess this is the view from the picture window of the wild whisky lounge at the Isle of Mull hotel.
I did offer to tie myself to the bar, but the offer was declined. In my defence it was a cold, wet miserable night and hopefully I’ve captured some of that in this very untypical ‘Boag’”
