'Above Drumochter'

‘Above Drumochter’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2009, 30 x 30 cm

Based on our day walking in the Drumochter Hills, this painting is quite an important piece. One of the first small Dalwhinnie paintings that managed to keep the rather loose nature of its bigger cousins. The paint is put down in a variety of ways, using different brushes and brush sizes. The pastel marks are quite vigorous and less tentative than in many of my small paintings. I actually painted three versions of this piece, developing the composition with each one. I plan to produce a larger version – perhaps 80 x 80 cm, hopefully creating a more abstract piece still and one using much thicker paint. Watch this space!
