‘Approaching Sgorr Dhearg, above Ballachulish’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2012, 30 x 30 cm
This small painting has been on the go for the last two years. The original version never really worked and I left it for about a year before working back into it. At this point I thought I’d finished it and actually put it into a frame ….but still I wasn’t happy with it and it stayed out of sight for another year. Last week as I was getting the studio ready for the Open Weekend at the Courtyard Studios I decided to take it out of the frame and use the frame for another painting. It was only at this point that I suddenly thought I could work into it again ….and this time I did finish it ….finally! I am at long last, pleased with it and it is now hanging for sale in my studio at £395. Sometimes it takes a long time to get a painting right ….but I got there in the end ….just need to find a buyer now!
