  1. There must be a lot of very happy people 'out there'. Wonderful paintings, Keith. One of these days I might be able to see them 'in the flesh' (as they say). Each painting encapsulates its own very special emotion, pulling the viewer into a range of different experiences and memories. Thank you so much for posting them.

  3. Good morning Keith!..... Bravo on these sales! every one of these is a winner... each bathed in your subtly controlled... but beautiful rich colour. Your mastery of sky and aerial perspective are your water colour hallmarks of distinction Keith. Both consistently of high standard!

    That Scrabster Light.... such a well designed compositon and executed painting! "Primo" in my humble opinion! No surprise that it's "out the door"!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce

    PS Thanks for your kind words left at my site this morning!

    1. Hi Bruce, thanks for your comments, which I appreciate.

      I'm not surprised that the lighthouse is your favourite - not unlike Nova Scotia I imagine.

      All the best,
      Keith

  5. Hi Keith, nice to see these all together on the web page. I particularly like the Maiden Pap painting- the middle distance hillside below the pap summit is very effective.

North Coast 500

In 2015 the North Highland Initiative started a project to boost tourism in the northern counties of Scotland. The idea was to publicise a 500 mile route through Inverness-shire, Ross & Cromarty, Sutherland and my home county of Caithness, and promote it as a superb road trip. I don't know how successful they expected it to be, but it has quickly become very popular and has been called one of the top five coastal routes in the World. In fact its popularity is becoming a problem for the local residents: some of the roads are single-track, with bays at intervals to allow two vehicles to pass each other, but there is an etiquette for their use that strangers are not always aware of. The result is that local people going about their business find themselves held up by slow-moving tourist vehicles, so if you use the route please pull over and allow other vehicles to pass. The amount of traffic will probably also cause damage to the roads, which were not intended for heavy use. Desp…

Moorland Fire

Moorland Fire Watercolour 25 x 36 cm
There is a definite feeling of approaching autumn now, with some cooler days and more unsettled weather. It hardly seems any time at all since the spring, when there was a long spell of dry weather and the moors were tinder-dry. There were a number of serious fires at the time and several nature reserves were badly damaged. I think they were mostly caused by accident or carelessness this time, but unfortunately there are people who seem to get satisfaction from starting fires deliberately.

The fire in this painting is of a different kind. Every year between, autumn and spring, shooting estates burn off small patches of moorland to leave a patchwork of heather. This encourages the breeding of grouse, with the old growth providing cover and the new shoots providing food. The operation has to be done very carefully, because fires can easily get out of control, and once the underlying peat starts to burn it can burn for days and is very difficult to p…
