Landscape Paintings by Keith Tilley
I am a painter out of Middle Tennessee in the U.S. and I stumbled onto your website and your paintings are beautiful. I have always wanted to paint in Scotland and your paintings just make me want to go that much more.
Hello Kevin and thanks for your comments.Scotland is a great place for landscape painters, with a wonderful variety of scenery and weather conditions. There is always something new to see.

Hi,I come here sometimes via Frank Edwards blog. One of my old school watercolor heros is Rowland Hilder and your work has this beautiful clarity and brightness I admire in Hilder`s work.By sheer enthusiasm I would like to recommend a lecture by Dr. Janice Simon on William Turner with interesting information on the way he did his watercolors.(video link).Happy 2009 !
Thanks Rob.I hope you have a good 2009 as well.
Hello EH. I know what you mean about Rowland Hilder. I think I probably have a long way to go before I reach his level, but I'm glad that you can see something similar in my work. He had a huge influence on British watercolour painting. Most of the artists I admire learned something from him.Thanks for the video link. I enjoyed watching it. Turner's 'Colour Beginnings' are wonderful and so far ahead of their time.
