‘From Ghlas Beinn, Rannoch moor’, Acrylic & Pastel, 76 x 23 cm
I thought I’d use this painting as my Artwork of the week owing to fact that we were back walking on this hill just last Sunday, (See my latest blog for details and photos).
This painting which is currently in my studio was created after our first visit to the hill a few years ago. I used quite bold colours in this piece and have always liked it. Ghlas Bheinn is the high point at the end of a small undulating escarpment that rises on the edge of Rannoch Moor. Being less than 600 metres high it makes the perfect view point overlooking the moor and surrounded by bigger hills and mountains too. Its close proximity to the A82 however does mean that despite the wonderful wild situation, you do tend to hear the sound of traffic drifting up to you from the road below. This shouldn’t put you off though as this really is a little gem of a walk …especially in the winter.
