‘Early spring, above Drumochter’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2011, 80 x 80 cm
Having just spent almost twelve hours wandering over the four hills that lie to the west of the DrumochterPass, I thought it would be appropriate to show this painting as my Artwork of the week.
It was one of seven paintings I completed following our first visit into these hills back in 2008. On that occasion we walked Gael-charn and A’Mharconaich in the early spring when the higher slopes still had snow and ice but lower down the snow became patchy and gave way to the first new growth of spring. This 80 x 80 cm acrylic painting plays around with these colours and patterns and is I think one of my best larger paintings.
Still available, the piece can be viewed in my studio. Visitors are always welcome although it’s always best to ring me first to check that I’m actually painting and not out wandering on a hill somewhere. Tel; 07742 437425
