Reflections, Balloch About 1929 - 1930

Not on display

  • Scottish Art
In 1929 Hunter embarked upon a series of paintings of Loch Lomond, north-west of Glasgow, and the village of Balloch which lies at the southern end of the loch. After spending time on the continent, Hunter had lightened his palette in response to the strong Mediterranean light, and his handling of paint had become bolder and more fluent. He had painted in the same area in 1924 but his later works are clear and unfussy in composition. In this painting, the sparkle of light and reflections on the surface of the loch are the main focus.
