After months of restrictions, in which we have all been encouraged to explore our much more local countryside (with the result that I now have a small collection of paintings of Cheshire), we are now able to think about travelling further afield. A couple of trips to Scotland have meant that I have been able to put together a small collection of paintings of the North Coast 500 - the road around the northernmost part of Scotland. Love it or hate it, the route is scenically stunning. To do it any justice, though, you have to get off the road and explore the landscape, which means taking time and staying there rather than whizzing through. I hope that some of the pictures above do the area justice.
On the Edge
If you found this site by searching for "Douglas Hutton artist" please be aware that there are two artists called Douglas Hutton, both originally from Fife. If you were looking for the one based in Ireland, please take a look at some of the gallery entries that will have come up on your search. If you were looking for the other one (me) please take a look at his work anyway. There are not many Douglas Huttons and we need to stick together.
