Scrabster Ice Quay

"The Ice Quay at Scrabster" - watercolour - 13 x 18 cm


A while ago I posted a painting of a 19th Century ice-house. This is a small watercolour of the modern equivalent, at Scrabster. A refrigeration plant produces ice in industrial qualities, which is piped into fishing boats moored at the quay alongside.

  3. Good afternoon Keith!... Always the magician - something intriguing from what others might see and consider... as nothing!

    Your choice of a cooler-than-usual palette serves to further amplify and echo the very nature of the subject's purpose!

    A great comnposition!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce

    1. Hi Bruce, as you know, it's not so much the subject but the light and form that makes it interesting. I always try to remember what Camille Pissarro said: "Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing."

      All the best,
      Keith

  4. It has a cold, isolated feeling about it - a feeling which you have captured beautifully. Two very different ice-houses, each saying something about the time in which it was built.
