Loch Scavaig and the Cuillin from Elgol, Skye

This postcard is one of an 'Art Colour' series which J Valentine & Sons Ltd produced from original art, in this case from a watercolour by Edward H Thompson (1879-1949). During the 1930s Thompson produced many paintings for Valentines for their postcard, book and calendar business. His earlier works for Valentines were standard Lake District scenes, but latterly he did paintings of other places, as in this postcard of Loch Scavaig, which were done from photographs and were not particularly accurate
