A painting of a traditional Scottish croft house made of white lime washed stones with a thatched roof, often made of Marram grass which grows on the sand dunes of the small islands of the west coast of Scotland particularly, Tiree as well as the Uists and Lewis and Harris. These small low roofed houses are often surrounded by Machair or meadows which are known for their colourful early summer flowers.
Available as professionally printed signed fine art giclee prints 12" x 12" or 20" x 20" on textured watercolor style paper.
Other custom sizes and finishes are available to order.
The dramatic often windy weather passes quickly over these islands and with no pollution and clear light so in this artwork I have tried to convey the atmosphere of a bright sunny day with a clear deep blue sky, and a washing line of clothes blowing in the wind. The thatched roof of Marram grass is held down by ropes and fishing nets, with a traditional peat stack built against the gable end. The Machair or flower meadows change colour throughout the season with a mix of yellow, white and purple flowers.
