Artwork of the Week
‘A damp morning, Buachaille Etive Beag, Glen Coe’, Acrylic and Pastel, 2014, 122 x 61 cm
This is one of my latest acrylic and pastel paintings. Based on a view we had as we were travelling north through Glen Coe a while back, it is rather unusual for me in that it is not only a low level view point but also done in a more traditional landscape format. I have to say that I’ve really enjoyed working on this piece although my partner Anita reckons I ought to paint more scenes of bright sunny conditions rather than these mistier, damp ones! She might have a point ….but I do love watching the mists break over and around the mountains. Anyway, this painting although just finished, will be on show at the Open Studios Weekend at the Courtyard studios this Saturday 4th / Sunday 5th October should you fancy coming down to see it for real. We’ll be open Saturday 4th, 11 am – 5pm and Sunday 5th, 12 noon – 5pm. Rumour has it that one of my colleagues will be having chocolate biscuits in his studio although if Nita and I get there first there may not be many left! You’d better arrive early!
