From the Vintage Collection
Tones: Warm Tan, Charcoal
Why We Love It: The feathery lightness of this charcoal drawing creates a beautiful contrast with the brown sketch paper, bringing the image of the lake to life. This vintage landscape is of the most famous loch in the Scottish Highlands, Loch Ness.
From The Artist: David Young Cameron was one of Scotland's most prolific and influential artists. In addition to his painting, drawings and watercolors, Cameron received widespread attention for his work as an etcher and printmaker. He was noted for his ability to capture his subjects using remarkably few lines. As a landscape painter, Cameron shied away from spectacular images of imposing natural forms and extreme weather, but instead had a preference and talent for capturing the stillness and ambiance of a place. To this day, his works remain some of the most poetic images ever produced of the Scottish Highlands.
