This dramatic rendering of the famous Scottish lake relies on mostly short, choppy strokes of thick paint to build color and texture. The composition is designed to direct the viewer to the surface of the loch in the distance, which almost glows as it reflects the light from above. "Hopefully this work captures some of the rugged beauty of the Scottish landscape," says Robert. The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted a complementary brown.

Getting to Know Robert

Robert Hofherr avoids depicting a landscape exactly as he sees it or as the viewer might expect. Instead, he enjoys reimagining landscapes and painting his pieces indoors at a fairly rapid pace. The works of French Fauve artists Maurice de Vlaminck and André Derain initially got him interested in painting, and also influenced his decision to not use grey in his works. During his free time he enjoys spending time with his kids, walking his dogs and taking road trips to out-of-way places in the mid-Atlantic region. He currently lives in Maryland.
