Barbara Rae RA, Winter Light, Lammermoor

Winter Light, Lammermoor, 1997

Barbara Rae RA (b. 1943)

RA Collection: Art

This painting is based on drawings made in the Lammermuir Hills in January and February of 1997. It was then completed in one working session at Barbara Rae’s studio.

Rae explained that she visited the area in midwinter because it is then that the starkness of the landscape is evident and the structure and outlines of pylons, tracks, fences and burnt heather are clearer. She also found that there were ‘some incredible sunset-quality colours: inky blues, pale mauves and lavenders, pink fluffy clouds. Obviously strong rose and purple were not present – but the feeling, the atmosphere of pink, indigo and purple was there.’
