'In the Mamores, Sping'

“In the Mamores, spring”, Acrylic & Pastel, 2010, 60 x 30 cm

The Mamores are just about at the limit for us as a practical day trip from Irvine. This is partly due to the fact that it’s a three hour drive to Kinlochleven and part due to the fact that these hills are for me quite an undertaking … and I’m am very slow in places like this. As such, a day in the Mamores is a big one for me and can only really be undertaken during the long day light hours of late spring and early summer months. This little painting is based on the view looking north from the ridge as you approach Stob Coire a’ Chairn and shows the very shapely top of An Garbhanach. On the day we were here it was a mixture of sunshine and big heavy showers of rain, hail and soft wet snow, but in the sun this hill looked very inviting. Mind you, according to the guide book, the actual ridge over the top is very narrow and quite exposed …so probably not one for me and my fuzzy eye! I may just have to dream about climbing this one!
