Venice Twilight is the largest painting of the show.

 

A stunning example of Robert Kelsey's compositional ability. The centrepiece is the Venice basin looking into the entrance to the Grand Canal. The Venetian architecture with Salute in the distance is presented with typical Kelsey 'perfect building perspective'. It separates (halves the canvas) the scale of his powerful sky and sunset set against the water of the Venice lagoon with rich purples, yellows and the orange of the sky and sunset reflected on the water. A common Kelsey motif is also presented with a reminder of the presence of man (the new- the piers and the water ferry/ies) subtly contrasting with the ancient 15th Century architecture. Kelsey adds small markings to represent the turn-on of the lights as twilight emerges to render the the balance of this masterpiece complete.

Kintyre Moorings was painted from Ronachan on the Kintyre peninsula with a perspective across to the distant Paps of Jura. A beautiful water and shoreline study showing the rocky shoreline set against the rich variations in the blues of the water, typical of this area. Again a typical West Coast motif is the yacht (in this case moored), which reminds the viewer of man's interaction with the stunning setting of the Scottish west coast. A bright day with a strong presence of clouds presented in the skyline - a throughly enjoyable and superbly constructed classic painting !
