Nepal's Eight Highest Mountains - Gordon says 'While working in Nepal I managed to paint, sketch and photograph many parts of the Himalaya. If you look at the ten highest mountains in the world eight of them are in Nepal. I had painted, or sketched, all of them. During Lockdown I decided to take all of my sketchbooks and work up a painting of each of them. This is the collection'.
All eight images are painted with acrylic on board, except Annapurna 1 which is on canvas. All pictures measure 60x60cms and come in an off-white 3" wooden frame.

His work hangs all over the world in corporate headquarters, museums, embassies, private and Royal collections. He has appeared on TV on three continents… radio…books… magazines and newspapers. He represented Scotland at an international art Expo in Denmark and was the only UK artist invited to produce an exhibition for the “Nepal 2011 year of tourism” celebrations.
