This picture depicts the stern a boat floating in water. The boat is dark navy blue. Around the upper rim is a broad band of white with the letters BRD 332 written on it. Beneath this is a line of cobalt blue and a thin red line. Land is visible in the background: a sandy beach lies between the sea and the foliage. There is a fishing line in front of the boat, alongside a white flag, tied to the pole by a red thread.

Born in 1941 in Inverness, Will Maclean's family was involved in the traditional industries of fishing, seafaring and crofting, and his work is influenced by his concern with the environment, community and work and the living experiences of Highland communities. After working as a midshipman and ring-net fisherman in the 1960s he attended Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen, now part of Robert Gordon University, and the British School in Rome.

In 1981 he joined the staff of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee. His has been exhibited work exhibited across Britain, Europe and North America. . His services to education and art have also been recognised with an MBE and he is a member of the Royal Scottish Academy.

His work includes paintings, sculpture and pieces made from objects he has found, particularly influenced by people who have lived and worked by the sea. Now retired from teaching he lives in Tayport in Fife with his artist wife, Marian Leven, who he met when they were both studying at Gray’s School of Art.
