Commentary from The Studio

A subject which might well appeal to the painter is The River Carron, Ross-shire, a grand sweep of open and breezy country through which the river winds like a broad silver ribbon. To show this fully Sir Edward has made the line of horizon high, with the dark masses of trees acting as a foil to the distant range of hills beyond In the distribution of masses he has shown his skill, and the lines of the composition are very restful and pleasing.
