A closer look at Caledonia

This still life Mackerel oil painting by the artist Daisy Sims-Hilditch is for those of us that want to bring the feel of a Scottish country house into our own homes. With its rich colours, you can also use it to highlight earthy shades elsewhere in the room or add depth to a lighter space.

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

This still life is part of the Caledonia series, which includes landscapes painted in Scotland. The earthy brown background and silvery blue fish in this Mackerel print work well with the colours in the landscapes, so they’re easy to group into a gallery wall. You could also prop it on a shelf on its own in a kitchen.
