‘Approaching Sgorr Dhearg, above Ballachulish’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2012, 30 x 30 cm
When we were out walking on Mam na Gualainn last week, we had superb views across Loch Leven to the big range of mountains that sit on the south side of the Ballachulish bridge. We walked this range on a fine May day back in 2005 and had this fine view as we approached Sgorr Dhearg, one of the two Munros in the range.
I started this painting several years ago but could never quite get it right. Then last year I dug it out once more and started work on it again …and this was the result. It’s not an over bright painting or one of an over dramatic scene, but it does I think nicely capture what it’s like to be walking in the hills as the mists come and go around you.
This painting is currently on display at my studio ….visitors are always welcome, although to check that I’m not out walking on yet another hill …it’s always worth giving me a quick call on my mobile first: 07742 437425.
