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: Charades (#27 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
Clouds move swiftly over the sun and a dappled glow highlights the fluttering petals. Dramatic purples become more subtle as the eye tries to discern definite shapes whilst they morph according to the elements. Senses are subject to charades as everything conspires to fluctuate and challenge whatever the mind settles upon.
