‘From Ben Oss, winter’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2011, 60 x 30 cm
This painting is currently hanging on the wall in my studio and is one that I did several years ago after a very snowy ascent of Ben Oss. I’ve always liked this piece and feel that it really captures the moment as we stood at the summit and the snow stopped falling and the cloud began to break. Prior to this we’d climbed the hill in driving horizontal snow and strong winds and it really wasn’t very pleasant. The weather changed so quickly for the better once we’d reached the summit that we descended in rapidly clearing skies and in bright sunshine. Anyway, if you’re interested in seeing this piece and live in the Ayrshire area, do call in to the studio sometime.
