Artwork of the Week
‘Approaching snow shower, Rannoch Moor’, Oil on canvas, 2015, 80 x 80 cm
I completed this painting last year after a fabulous little winter walk on Ghlas Bheinn on the edge of Rannoch Moor. It was a day of short heavy snow showers interspersed with brief bursts of bright sunshine.
I was reminded of this piece just last Saturday as we walked the same route but under perfect summer conditions. Everything was very different with the colours being much greener and the views much more expansive under the clear June skies. I may have to do another painting, this time based on Ghlas Bheinn in the summer. See my blog for photos and details of our walk last Saturday on Ghlas Bheinn.
