Coming back from Gardenstown, there was a stretch (between Fochabers and Cullen, I think; certainly before Elgin) where I felt like I’d driven into one of Klimt’s forest paintings.
Not that a plain pine plantation can’t be inspiring too; this was taken yesterday along the path from Aros, Portree.
From there I went into the woodland at Uig, and sketched alongside the river. It’s the location that inspired my “Summer Glow” painting. My fingers are now itching to paint this autumnal tree with the dark reflected trees.
