The Haar is a Scottish phrase used to describe a cold sea mist that drifts in from the North Sea along the east coast. Findhorn beach on the North East coast of Scotland was the inspiration for this painting where I often felt the haar kissing my cheeks. Here, the warmer moist air is rolling in from the North over the cooler waters of the Moray Firth.
