Gun Hill

Gun Hill by Annie McLean [acrylic on canvas 6×6 inches]
Today’s painting for the FunaDay Dundee 2017 event.  This painting was inspired by my love of Southwold, where I lived for several years.  I have tried to simplify the scene, in my quest to develop an abstract way of painting.  I’ve concentrated on keeping a realistic but simplified scene, using shape and colour to convey my feelings about this place.  This is one of the ‘wee ones’ I may use as a study for a larger piece.

It has been rumoured that the Duke of Cumberland gave the cannons  to the town after the battle of Culloden – but I am not aware of how true that is.  If you are interested in reading a short article on this then click the link: Gun Hill, Southwold
