A Ruined Croft

A Ruined Croft

Watercolour, 17 x 26 cm

So often it's the simple subjects that make the best paintings. I came across this old ruined croft while out walking. At first glance, it wasn't particularly special, just another ruin in the countryside, but that was really what made it an interesting subject: these abandoned farmsteads are dotted throughout the landscapes of the Highlands and they make up so much of the character of the area. From a more technical point of view the red tin roofs, contrasting with the greens of the grass and tree, made a striking colour scheme.



ow what a gem, .... more of this please !!
