See the sea in its varying Scottish moods

AN array of paintings inspired by the sea, from the Highlands and Islands to the Solway coast in the west and Berwickshire in the east, has washed up in the Tweeddale Museum, Peebles, this month.

The artists are Lizzie McCorquodale who was brought up at Lindean near Selkirk, while Mary Morrison is based at Wasps Studios in Selkirk and Ros White works from her studio in Cumbria. All the paintings on display are for sale.

Scottish Borders Council’s visual arts officer, Elizabeth Hume, said: “Because the seascapes are mostly large scale, when you step into the gallery you get a real sense of crashing waves and tides ebbing and flowing – a real contrast to the soft, rolling hills of the Borders.”

Sea Moods is open until September 29 and is free.
