‘Early evening, below Canisp’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2014, 30 x 30 cm
We’ve been looking for places to stay for our walking holiday this year. Still very drawn to Assynt although whether we’ll be able to find anywhere to stay at this late stage is debatable ….we left it a little late for booking anywhere. I guess it might have to be the tent this year! Fingers crossed for extra good weather!
If we do get up to Assynt, I’m hoping to get back to the summit of Canisp again. Nita and I climbed it several years ago on a beautiful fine spring day. The views from the summit were amazing. We stopped for a rest at a small loch tucked down underneath the main bulk of the hill on our way down and this little painting is about that time and place. It’s very very peaceful and as it is off the main track by some way ….it felt quite remote and quiet. This painting is currently hanging in my studio if you’d like to see it up close.
