House in Perthshire, Scotland October 2019
Beautiful house, beautiful setting, beautiful sunshine!
As with all my paintings involving architecture and it's related surroundings, it is so important to work in situ to achieve accurate perspective. I try to absorb and record to memory the beauty and energy of the view in front of me and at this particular location, the incredibly stunning flora and oaks, the height of which I'd not seen before!
Having completed the initial oil sketch, the hard work begins back
in my studio to really bring this piece to life with rich colour and tonal values, plus... a signature quirk.
