Rock Stacks at Brough Harbour

Rock Stacks at Brough Harbour - watercolour, 25 cm x 36 cm   The sedimentary rocks of the Caithness coastline are very susceptible to erosion, leaving many caves and rock stacks. These examples are at Brough Harbour.

Sinclair's Bay and Castle

Image
Sinclair's Bay and Castle - watercolour, 13 cm x 18 cm   The location of Castle Sinclair Girnigoe, on cliffs on the edge of Sinclair's Bay, makes it perfect for a dramatic painting. Here I chose to have the castle in foreground shade, silhouetted against the vast sweep of the bay in sunlight behind. www.keithtilley.co.uk

Alternative Energies

Alternative Energies - watercolour, 17 cm x 25 cm   I thought this was an interesting view, with the contrast between the two forms of energy generation. In the distance are wind-turbines producing renewable electricity, and the buildings nearer the foreground are the Dounreay nuclear power station. It was a cloudy day with sunny intervals, so I chose to have the distant wind-turbines in a patch of sunlight, while the foreground was in shade. This created a focal point, but it also highlighted the current push for more renewable energy, rather than the controversial nuclear option.   

Hay-making Time

Hay Bales in the Sun - watercolour, 17 cm x 25 cm   I love hay-making time. The air is full of the smell of new-mown hay, and the fields are full of the sculptural forms of the round hay bales. It also marks a change though. The fields, which were full of growing grass and wildflowers, are now bare, and the summer will soon be coming to an end.
