Morar Sunset by scottnaismith

The sun setting over the Isle of Rum with the Isle of Eigg just visible on the left as seen from the Morar hotel. The silver Sands of Morar is one of my favourite, inspirational mainland Scotland locations.

After 10 years of painting the Scottish landscape, my recent work becomes more involved with cloudcover and its effect on light and colour through both its translucent and opaque properties. Clouds have the ability to refract and reflect, creating an ever changing perception of light which inspires my use of colour.

    My goodness, this is sensational. Huge fav, Scott.

  • Thanks Frannie. Glad you like this new stuff. The sea and sky studies are really allowing me to say what I want in an abstract sense as a colourist.
