Society of Caithness Artists

Sunlight on a Farm - Watercolour - 25 x 36 cm



The Lookout Tower at Thurso East - Watercolour - 25 x 36 cm



I haven't been finding much time for blogging recently, but here are a couple of images to keep things going. They were both sold last week at the annual show of The Society of Caithness Artists.

  1. Well it's no wonder they were sold!

  2. They are both lovely, though the second one is my favourite: it takes you beyond the land and the present into 'something else'.

  3. These are two really superb watercolours Keith. Your landscapes are always an inspiration to me! Congratulations on the sales too :)

  5. HI Keith!... Have missed your "voice and presence... but understand the "whys"... Good to have you back!

    Little wonder that these are sold... they are bold watercolour statements and yet they are both beautifully atmospheric... and powerful in their muted wide range of values and chroma. Outstanding!

    Good luck... further sales and Happy Summer Keith!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce

  6. Deux très belles aquarelles. La seconde m'évoque bien l'atmosphère de la côte écossaise. J'aime beaucoup les couleurs douces de ces deux superbes aquarelles.

  7. Yes I agree Diane. That sums up what I find fascinating about this northern coastline.

  8. Superb Keith!

    Both, on selling but the most part on making them.
    The first one is so loosely done, with loosely I
    mean with a great confident of what goes where and how.

    Superb, really superb!

  9. Hi Bruce, sometimes the business side of art gets in the way of other things. Hopefully it will settle down a bit in a week or two. I hope you are still enjoying your summer painting.

    All the best,
    Keith

  11. These are both superb watercolours Keith. I agree with Michael, I always find your work so inspiring. Yours was the first blog I started following and over the years I've never tired of seeing your landscapes. Nice work.

  12. Thanks John, one of the pleasures of blogging is being able to "give something back". I remember when we first met on-line, it seems a long time ago now doesn't it.
