|Title||Altyre Estate near Forres Scotland|
|Description||This lovely Scottish Victorian landscape oil painting is by Aberdeenshire artist Thomas Bunting. The location is the Altyre estate near the small town of Forres, in Moray, Scotland. It was painted circa 1890 and is painted as a portrait to emphasise the height and majesty of the trees, some of their tops not even visible. To add to the perspective, a dog, a mere dot at the foot of the trees, runs through the wood. it's wonderful mix of green hues and nature at its best. An excellent example of a 19th century Scottish wooded landscape and of Bunting's work.
