Welcome to the beautiful Glen Affric, in my humble opinion the most beautiful of the glens in the Scottish Highlands! This painting shows the River Affric shortly after it has passed through Loch Affric on its eastward journey. It will shortly pass into Loch Beinn A Mheadhoin. I've been visiting this lovely spot for the last 20 years and, although I've been fairly head-down with commission work lately, I finally found time to sketch and paint it on a few days' break away in the Highlands. It's early morning and the pristine, ancient and original Caledonian Forest is emerging from the morning mist. The rocks here are ancient too and reflect the pastel colours of the sky as the bright, lively water thunders by. It's easy to paint places you love, and this painting just flowed like the water! I'm really pleased that I feel I have been able to do justice to another of my favourite places on the planet. I love it.
