Portree is Skye’s main town. It’s a very pretty place. The usual view people remember from Portree are the colorful houses lining the bay. I admit I really liked those little houses but I came across the view I painted while wandering down the city. It was a gloriously sunny day, and over the roofs, I spotted this particular riviera-esque view. I couldn’t quite get over the color of the sea.

I was lucky enough to visit Skye during a very sunny 2 day journey. Anyone who crosses the  Skye bridge, knows they are entering a very mystical land. On an artistic level, rural landscapes have not been my favorite things to paint. The lines I see so easily in urban landscapes are more difficult to decipher in rural landscapes. I suppose the more I’ll practice this terrible artistic flaw of mine, the better I’ll get. Hopefully.
