Wildflowers in the garden

Image
Wildflower Garden - acrylic, 20 x 25 cm  My partner was given a packet of wildflower seeds, so she scattered them in an empty area of the garden. She didn't really expect them to come to much, but Nature created this colourful display! I don't usually paint flowers, but I wanted to create a record of it, and acrylics seemed more suitable than watercolours. www.keithtilley.co.uk

A Flow Country Sky

A Flow Country Sky - watercolour, 16 x 26 cm The Caithness Flows are definitely 'Big-Sky' country! The lack of trees, and the flat landscape, mean that the sky is completely open over the whole field of view. I've never been so aware of cloud formations and changing weather, as I have since I have lived here. www.keithtilley.co.uk
