My fascination with sunsets continues unabated! After a muted and mellow sunset over Findhorn beach, I decided I would go for a bit more drama over another of my favourite seaside locations along the Moray Firth: Cummingston. This is my second painting from this location, which is a rocky headland that juts out from the beach below the little village. Here we're facing west, as the Firth narrows on its way to Inverness, about 30 miles distant. The interesting rock formation in the cliffs below Cummingston forms the focal point of the scene, whilst Burghead can be seen jutting out into the Firth in the middle distance. The mountains of wild Sutherland, on the far side of the Firth, provide a faint backdrop; the area shown here would be just a little north of the entrance of the Cromarty Firth.
These colours were just irresistable to me, both in the sky and reflected on the water's surface, which I have kept calm to show the reflected colour better. I can't think of a better medium for a sky like this one than watercolour!/the-coastline-gallery.html
