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.

  • Height :64.80cm

  • Mount width :8cm

Just so you know

On the back of the frame is a wire for hanging (be sure to select the correct fixing for your wall), and we’ve included Velcro dots that you attach to the frame and the wall to help the print stay neatly straight.

There may be some variation in the colour of the mounts, so if you plan to buy a few from the same collection, we recommend buying all at the same time.

When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.
