Bladnoch River is in the south western part of Scotland and runs next to the Bladnoch Distillery, a boutique whisky brewing establishment near Wigtown, Dumfries and Galloway. The Bladnoch is a pleasant river set in rural surroundings in the Machars of Galloway. The river rises out of Loch Maberry and gently weaves its way over moors, forestry and farmland before entering the Solway at Wigtown Bay.
The landscape around the Bladnoch is visually very attractive with little development having taken place. There are only three settlements along the length of the Bladnoch - Bladnoch village, where this was painted, Wigtown, and Kirkcowan. The unspoiled natural environment is host to a wide variety of wildlife with otters, deer and even ospreys being sighted in the river's vicinity.
This was painted during a 3 week painting trip in Scotland and Southern France.
Framing size is an estimate, although a good one, as I need to take it to my framer.
