This is 'Forres, High Street', watercolour, 10 x 13" (26 x 33 cm). This is another local town in my area, and the painting shows the High Street shortly after a shower, which is now blowing through. The roads and pavements are wet, and I enjoyed doing the reflections and shadows on this wet surface! You might be wondering what the title of this post means. Well, Forres is a very old town. First mentioned in the year 900, it has been a Royal Burgh since 1140. In Shakespeare's dark play 'Macbeth', King Duncan has his castle here at Forres before being dispatched by the murderous Macbeth. Today Forres is a thriving town, and I hope I've done it justice here while adding a little atmosphere of my own!
