Overlooking Jura by Charles Knight

Faced with severe weather and dramatic highland scenery, Charles Knight developed a more expansive, visionary style than his previous light, flat washes suitable for calm, bucolic English pastoral scenes. Brush, pen, pencil and tonal contrasts to capture fleeting atmospheric effects. The painting shows a view looking across to the island of Jura from the Scottish mainland in typical rough stormy weather.
