This gouache painting expresses the movement of the tides, which is conveyed by the outlines of the shells and plates, reminiscent of waves lapping on the beach. 'Ebb and Flow' refers to this motion.

David Sinclair, born in 1937, studied Drawing and Painting at the Glasgow School of Art. He was then awarded a Post Diploma and travelling scholarship, allowing him to continue his studies in Paris, Holland and London. David prints his paintings and etchings from his own press and his work is included in numerous private and public collections.

David's trademark is his use of pale blue/gray paint in his Still Life work, which he is very fond of. Many of his paintings deal more explicitly with the Scottish landscape.
