The heathers are vibrant in their purples and pinks throughout the Scottish Highlands. At the end of the summer as the bracken tips are turning reds and browns, the colours of the heather become brighter and prouder amongst their autumnal counterparts. It is these beauties that I've focused on for my new Highland Heathers collection as part of the September '30 Paintings in 30 Days' challenge.
Here are the practical details:
- Title: Finest Finery (#3 Highland Heathers Collection)
- Oil on canvas board (280gsm, 100% cotton canvas on 100% recycled board)
- Size: 20x20cm/8"x8"
- Artist-signed on the reverse side and will arrive with a certificate of authenticity
I usually write about my paintings when I first post them in my Journal here on my website. My journal post for Finest Finery was:
Waves of many colours smoulder across the croft, the only constant being the green mattress beneath them. Buds unfurl and simply exist for the moment - that moment where they can bloom happily and show off their finest finery to the world.
