DESCRIPTION:  William Russell Flint was always particularly fond of the scenery of his native Scotland. As his friend and biographer Arnold Palmer has noted of the artist, ‘The dark, rich landscape of Scotland is what he likes best to render; and after Scotland, Spain, and next in order Southern France.’ The artist himself has noted that ‘I suppose I have painted more Scottish landscapes than anything else; and I never paint anything with greater pleasure...We once spent a glorious autumn in the Highlands, six weeks of perfect painting weather from the start of October to mid-November. The trees, rowan, beech, birch and oak, became more and more autumnal till all was a blaze of vermilion and gold...A lot of work was done there: I think I painted forty water-colours.’ Flint first exhibited a number of Highland watercolours in his second one-man show, at the Fine Art Society in London in 1911.
