Unless you have the benefit of local knowledge, I expect you didn’t know (‘cos I didn’t either!) that the character in Daniel Defoe’s classic story of the castaway, Robinson Crusoe, is based on a real person. The unfortunate sailor was born in this village, Largo, on the East Coast of Scotland, and his birthplace is marked with a Robinson Crusoe statue. (And there’s the “Crusoe” Hotel, “Castaway” self-catering cottages etc. etc.). As if that wasn’t enough, the village’s name – Largo – is like music to the ears 😉 And if that, along with the castaway connection, doesn’t capture your imagination the pretty village definitely will because I think it’s just a picture!
“Spring Day, Largo” was painted on site on 600g rough, mould-made Hahnemühle paper using Windsor and Newton watercolours paints. It comes mounted in a warm white mount to fit a standard frame size of 40x50cm.
