A lovely scene Ron.

Thank you David, Heather,David, Alan and Denise.

A very nice balanced piece of work Ron. Love your foreground too.

Love this Ron, the dry stone wall is very effective.

Lovely composition and colours, Ron.

Love your focus on drawing shapes (not things). A lovely painting.

I recognised the location immediately! Nicely painted .

Thank you Chris, Katy, Paul, Jenny, Diane and Judith. It’s great when people recognise the subject.

Nice painting of Dunnet Head lighthouse Ron! Looks towards Hoy, Orkney indeed. Love a lighthouse!

Thanks, Gillian. Visibility wasn’t good enough that day, but it would have been great to put that added touch in.
