Lochinver Abstract

Lochinver Abstract
20" x 26"  - acrylic on paper - nfs

"The port of Lochinver is the largest settlement on the west coast of Scotland north of Ullapool. The main road north runs well inland here, and a visit involves a ten mile each way detour along the A837. It's well worth it."  The settlement was situated around the curved water-front of the loch, called Loch Inver. As it is so far north and it was late June, it did not get really dark until quite late in the evening (11 pm-ish?) and my memory is of the lights twinkling on the loch, as seen from the window of our B&B.  And that is what I tried to capture in this painting.
