Scottish Croft At the End of the Road is an original, realistic drawing, one of my nature-based artworks from the Highlands in northern Scotland.
I depict here a lonely croft with a view. And what a fantastic view it is! Far away on the horizon, you see the bluish cliffs on the left and even further in the distance, slightly to the right, indicating islands in light blue. Finally, much closer to the viewer on the right side, there is a greenish peninsula with yellow sand patches on its shores.
The sky is blue, and the Loch waters in deep azure are ever more intense than the colour of the sky itself.
The croft is slightly to the left of the centre of the artwork. I created the drawing in early spring, and you can see that the grassland surrounding the croft is not quite green yet. In the right corner of the charming landscape, you see a field with furrows, a small tree, and a suggestion of a plain farmer's fence.
Can you imagine living in this place? I imagined it, and I would if I only could. :)
