Subtle But Sassy
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: Subtle But Sassy (#23 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 Subtle But Sassy was:
Intermingled states of being all curl their way across crofts and mountains, interspersed by waterfall torrents and huge rocks. They gently pick their way around and over these sights, already amazingly resplendent in their own right. Heather tufts furnish harsh angles and crevices with their subtle but sassy colours and textures (even rocks need home comforts from time to time!).
