The view from my previous home, so one I have spent many hours gazing at in many different moods. For this view of Ruins at Achlochan pastel I chose April, when the sea is often a soft indigo blue and the reed bed (once a home to corncrakes) a pale straw yellow, contrasting wonderfully with the rusty roofs of the cottages. In the bottom laft of the painting is the ruin of a stone house built upon an iron age “broch” and offshore is the Black Isle.
