Duncansby Head Lighthouse

Duncansby Head Lighthouse
Acrylic
20 x 25 cm

Duncansby Head is the most north-easterly point in the British Isles and it really feels like the end of the mainland. The view looks out over the Pentland Firth and the next land in sight is the islands of Orkney.

  2. Hi Keith!... A great subject... lovely warm colour and light!

    I love the way that you have layered the levels from the grass upward... up into the clouds and sky! Very effective!

    "You are on a strong roll.... love the switch over from panoramaic mountainscapes to single focussed subjects.. close up! A nice change in your posts!

    Great work Keith!

    Good Painting!
    Warm regards,
    Bruce

    It's interesting to paint all the different whites Bruce, whereas in watercolour I just have the white of the paper.
