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: Reclaimed Limelight (#21 Highland Heathers Collection)
- Oil on canvas board (280gsm, 100% cotton canvas on 100% recycled board)
- Size: 20x20cm/8"x8" (3mm depth)
- 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 Reclaimed Limelight was:
Soft greens and earthy terracottas are prevalent in faint but distinct patches, marking the seasonal changes and bedding down instincts. Clumps are less dense and deep olives start to wend their way back into reclaiming the limelight that they're so used to. Happy after their few weeks in the side-lines and ready to help those late summer buds prepare for winter slumber.
