Scottish Croft At the End of the Road is an original artwork, one of Rhia's realistic drawings, one of her fantastic nature drawings from the Highlands in Nord Scotland.
She depicts a lonely croft with a view. And what a fantastic view it is! Far away on the horizon, you see the bluish cliffs on the left, and even further in the distance, slightly to the right, an indication of islands in light blue. Finally, much closer to the viewer on the right side, there is a greenish peninsula with yellow sandy patches on its shores.
The sky is blue, and the Loch waters in deep azure are ever more intense as the colour of the sky itself.
The croft is slight to the left from the centre of the artwork. Rhia created the drawing in early spring, and you see that the grassland surrounding the croft is not utterly green yet. In the right corner of the charming landscape, you see a field with furrows, a small tree, and a suggestion of a plain farmer's fence.
