‘From the summit of Ben Vrackie’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2009, 60 x 30 cm
With our walks starting to take us further east this summer, I thought I’d try and select something for the Artwork of the week that matched. I chose this piece which I’ve always liked and although it’s not as east as Glen Shee, it’s certainly heading that way! This painting, based on a view we had from the summit of Ben Vrackie, looks north towards I guess, the Beinn a’ Ghlo hills.
As you know, I’ll be holding an exhibition of work at the John Muir Trust Wild Space in Pitlochry next May / June and I think I’ll have to try and create another painting based on this fine hill before then…..we’ll just have to go back and walk up it again …..It’s a tough job, but….!
