Everyone knows that nothing excites an artist more than trying to capture the fleeting effects of light - and nothing excites this one more than sunsets! In this painting, 'Evening Light near Loch Torridon', watercolour, 10 1/4 x 7", I really wanted to go to town on that time just before sunset when the rays of the setting sun burst through the clouds, giving the scene a rich and dramatic colour. In this image, the hills shine in the sun's aura, the clouds glow with rich colours against the deep blue sky and the river and the grass all reflect the varied colours of the sky. I hope the overall effect is atmospheric and evocative of this beautiful time of day.
