Sun Breaking Through at Loch More

Image
Sun Breaking Through at Loch More - watercolour, 16 x 26 cm I love it when a grey winter day is suddenly transformed as the sun drops below the cloud level, and lights up the landscape.   www.keithtilley.co.uk

Below Ben Dorrery

Image
Below Ben Dorrery - watercolour, 17 x 26 cm Ben Dorrery which, in the flat countryside of Caithness, looks bigger than it actually is. The views from the top, looking over the vast peatlands of the Flow Country, are spectacular. www.keithtilley.co.uk  

A Flow Country Sky

Image
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

Image
A Farm Near Camster - watercolour, 16 x 26 cm   A marginal landscape, where grazing farmland transitions into the vast peat bog of the Flow Country. Sold.   www.keithtilley.co.uk

The old Man of Hoy

Image
The Old Man of Hoy - watercolour, 16 x 26 cm    This iconic rock stack stands below the towering cliffs on the west side of the island of Hoy, where it is exposed to the full force of winter storms from the Atlantic. The basalt rocks at its base give it some protection, but I wonder how long it will be before sea-level rise, and the effects of the weather topple this venerable old man! www.keithtilley.co.uk

Glen Sligachan

Image
Glen Sligachan - watercolour, 16 x 26 cm The rugged River Sligachan on the Isle of Skye, with Sgurr nan Gillean behind. The nearby Sligachan Hotel was a base for some of the early mountaineers in Scotland.  www.keithtilley.co.uk
