‘Below Suilvern, a wet afternoon’

‘Below Suilvern, a wet afternoon’, Acrylic & Pastel, 30 x 30 cm, (Work in progress)

This is the latest stage of the new small painting I’m doing based on a sketch I made back in May. We walked from Lochinver to the north side of the prominent peak of Suilvern and I stopped to make several small drawings of this fine hill. For the first few hours the weather had been dry but with an increasingly strong wind blowing. We walked to a point below the eastern end of the hill but as we made our way back west the weather deteriorated rapidly with driving rain and mist increasingly shrouding the hill. I worked into one of the sketches when I got back into the dry and tried to capture something of this damp and wild scene.

The painting is probably not quite finished yet but I’ll wait and see for a short while before doing any more to it. Visitors are always welcome to my studio so do call in if you’re in the area.
