A closer look at Caledonia

Light, space and a sense of calm – that’s what this painting, with its expansive, overcast sky, brings to a room. One of our resident artists Daisy Sims-Hilditch painted it en plein air on the sand dunes at Tentsmuir Beach in Scotland: a dramatic landscape where the pine forest stretches almost onto the sands.

Meet the artist

Daisy Sims-Hilditch is a London-based artist who creates landscapes, portraits and the occasional still-life in a naturalistic, impressionist style, often en plein air. Capturing the changing light is what she’s known for.

En plein air: explained

When an artist is painting en plein air, it means that they’re completing the entire piece from start to finish outdoors in the landscape that they’re painting. It’s a way of creating very natural, of-the-moment pieces.

In the frame

The frame on this piece is cedar, which we’ve left unpainted because the grey-brown colour works so well with the tones in the painting, and because the natural feel of the grain suits the subject. It has an off-white mount to give the picture some breathing space.

Where we see it

Because of its size (it’s one of the larger prints in our collection), this painting is a good one to choose if you want to hang it on its own. It works just as well in a group as well though. Try it with two other paintings in different sizes and orientations – odd numbers tend to look more relaxed than even ones.
