‘Below Ben Oss’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2013, 30 x 30 cm
This little painting has just some back from the framers and I’m really quite pleased with it. Based on a view we had earlier this year when we walked up Cononish glen, it tries to capture the very misty scene looking up from below Ben Oss to the lower flanks of Ben Lui. This was a low level walk but with the thick mist coming and going we got some beautiful views. It’s amazing, even in the dullest of conditions there can be so much atmosphere.
This painting will be on display in my studio at the Courtyard Studios in Irvine, as part of our annual Open Studios Weekend this coming Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th October. Open: 11 am – 5pm Saturday 5th Oct, 12 noon – 5pm Sunday 6th October. I hope you can get along to see the work.
