Sunlight on Ben Loyal

"Sunlight on Ben Loyal" - watercolour - 16 x 26 cm


I drove over to Tongue, in Sutherland, today to deliver paintings to an exhibition at the Ben Loyal Hotel. I always enjoy that journey, especially the bit where you emerge from trees above the village to see this view of Ben Loyal. It seems such a shapely mountain and its position, at the head of the Kyle of Tongue, makes it seem much bigger than it really is.

  1. Good morning Keith!... A piece radiant with sunlight... majestic in its panoramic breadth... "simply"...breath-taking in every detail Keith!

    Another uniquely highland... Tillyesque watercolour gem!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce

    1. Hi Bruce, "majestic in its panoramic breadth" perfectly sums up my feelings for this mountain. You're a poet as well as an artist, as you continually demonstrate when you "paint" with words in your blog posts.

      All the best,
      Keith
