A surreal almost dreamlike piece, “Good Morning Arran” opens the mind to the possibilities of a coastal view.

Stewart is known for his dreamlike, abstracts and this modern take on a classic view is a fine example of Scottish life, visible from varying points across North Ayrshire, the island has become a popular tourist destination for its beautiful scenery and idyllic beauty.

Looking at the painting we see Arran from a different perspective, surreal and still, you can see what the overall theme of the work.  With boats and ocean playing centre point to the painting, each viewing opens up new aspects and details that are easily missed, something that has become a staple of his work is the detailing and of course the fact that each viewing brings something new and interesting to the eye.

Close inspection we see the fisherman elements and of course, the cottages that dot the coastline of Arran, it should be noted that on a clear day which the painting depicts, we see the semi-transparent cloud cover and hills.  Every detail in the painting is noteworthy and captures the essence of the island in the artists own surreal style.

A beautifully executed and simplistic piece “Good morning Arran” is a fine art dream in landscape form.

Known mainly for his surrealist work, Stewart Nicol Soutar has again, brought something beautiful to the art world.
