‘From Beinn a’ Chrulaiste, March’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2012, 30 x 30 cm
This is a small quick painting I did last week using quite thin coats of acrylic and quick scribbled pastel lines. The painting was more an attempt to figure out how I might do a larger piece based on this view. I may though, do a couple more quick pieces along similar lines before attempting a bigger painting.
Anyway, this is a view looking across the glen from the slopes of Beinn a’ Chrulaiste towards the face of Buachaille Etive Mor ….on this occasion, just breaking clear of the early morning mists that had been shrouding all the hills an hour earlier. This was back in March on a particularly fine day. It had been quite dry and it was too early in the year for much in the way of new growth …so everywhere was a mix of yellows and browns …very little green around at all.
