Torrance Linn

acrylics on board, 30x25cm.
Went for a walk this afternoon during a brief dry spell through the Calderglen Country Park and the Rotten Calder was in spate after yesterdays downpour. It reminded me of this small acrylic painting I did a few years ago which portrays the peaty orang/brown water as it cascades over the 'Linn'. The tree trunk is still there albeit reduced in length due to many storms. I was pleased with the way I managed to express the turmoil of the water as it bubbles and foams below the waterfall.
