This piece was directly inspired by a walk I took in Burray in Spring, looking across Echna Loch to Scapa Flow with the road sandwiched in between and the hazy hills of the West Mainland in the distance. I was really struck by the flat, horizontal planes of texture and colour against the gentle, undulating hills. A mixture of handtufting, single warp and double warp weft was used to create textural variation between the horizontal planes.
