Pine Trees in Glen Quoich

Scots Pines in Glen Quoich
Watercolour
25 x 16 cm

The snow suddenly disappeared in much warmer weather, but after a brief respite, arctic weather is set to return in the next few days. Meanwhile, here is another painting of the Cairngorms. This pair of pine trees, in Glen Quoich, was just across the river from the group of trees I painted earlier.

  1. Hi Keith!... Nice to see your "take" on the kingdom "united kingdom"... of Trees!!

    I particularly like yhe very deep sense of space and aerial perspective.Your creative use of sparse detail to create an interesting foreground in contrast to the flatly washed layers of receding space... is clever... and works! A nice piece of work!

    Good painting! Thanks for sharing your trees Keith!

    Warmest regards,
    Bruce

  4. Hi Bruce,

    I always feel that "less is more" is the best practice in watercolour, especially in the background.

    I'm glad you like my latest attempt at "trees".

    All the best,
    Keith

  6. What an enchanting painting ... your choice of colours is particularly enticing; love the gentle light and the way it beckons me into the painting and beyond.
