|Sunlight on Dalemore, watercolour on Fabriano 300gsm Rough paper, 16 x 26 cm|
The old farmstead of Dalemore. It must have been quite a substantial farm at one time, and the barns are still used, but the house is empty and becoming ruinous now.
The sunlight shining on the buildings had the effect of a spotlight on a stage-set, highlighting them and subduing the background. I could have chosen to leave the wind turbines out, but they are such a feature of this landscape that it wouldn't have seemed right somehow.
