Union of St Kilda and San Michele

This painting is an attempt to give a meaning of scale to Stac Lee in the Kildan archipelago. Photographs fail to express the sheer scale of the highest sea stac in the British Isles, so paints must be used to help set the scene more forcefully. In a metaphysical twist I tow the L’Isola San Michele in Venice 1,980 km for comparison. All heights are to scale.
