Inspired by shoals of shimmering mackerel swimming amongst the stripes of the Scottish Sea. Each stripe retains the hand painted quality of wonky lines and subtle mark making to give added texture and movement. Each silvery shimmering mackerel has beautiful distinctive tiger like patterns as they swim together around the lighthouse.
