Sunlight on Dalnaha

"Sunlight on Dalnaha" - watercolour - 16 x 26 cm
 

Another view of the cottage at Dalnaha. This gives more of an idea of how secluded it is. It's also an example of how useful clouds can be; throwing shadows on the landscape, and providing tonal contrast in a subject which could otherwise appear flat and uninteresting.

  1. Good morning Keith!... This soulful Dalnaha vista weaves together a tapestry of the fullest measure of powerful observation and drama... as it unfolds "out there." It is these plein air revelations that separate your work... from the ordinary!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce

  2. I've really enjoyed looking at your blog since coming across it and I particularily like this picture. You have captured the vastness and loneliness really well and yet it is extreemely inviting. A super piece of work.
