‘A damp morning, Buachaille Etive Beag, Glen Coe’, Acrylic and Pastel, 2014, 122 x 61 cm, RP £1400
I completed this somewhat more traditional scene a week or so before I went off to Brazil and so with all that followed, didn’t really get much chance to see it before putting it into my latest exhibition at the Harbour Arts Centre in Irvine. I’m glad to say that it looks good and makes quite a change from the square format I usually use.
The painting is based on a damp misty morning as we drove north through Glen Coe towards Loch Leven and the Mamores. It was such a beautiful view with the mists breaking around this wonderful peak, that I asked Nita to stop so that I could just look and then take several photos. I rarely paint this kind of view but in this case made an exception ….especially as I wanted to create quite a large painting. This piece is 122cm x 61cm and would make a good centre-piece for any large wall.
The painting is part of my “In Sun, snow, mist and rain” exhibition at the Harbour Arts Centre, 114 – 116 Harbour St, Irvine, Ayrshire, KA12 8PZ. The exhibition opens on Thursday evening, 27th November 2014 and runs until January 9th 2015. Any paintings purchased for Christmas can be collected from the gallery a few days before ……check with reception at the Harbour Arts Centre.
I hope you can get along to the exhibition either on the preview, 7pm – 9pm, (all welcome, no invitation needed) or at some point before 9th January. Please spread the word!
