Michael told the Leader and Observer : “I’ll be painting a new composition of Dunnottar Castle on the night in front of the audience which is being auctioned off for our charity by the owner of Taylors Auction House and there will also be a selection of new drawings, paintings and prints available for sale.”

Michael studied at Dundee and Aberdeen and graduated with a masters degree in fine art.

Over the past 15 years he has won a number of awards and participated in group and solo exhibitions.

His work is held in private and public collections throughout the UK, including the Royal Scottish Academy of Art.

His paintings record the passing of time and season and its effects on the landscape.

A selection of his paintings and drawings will be on sale throughout the evening.
