‘In the Blackmount, December’

‘In the Blackmount, December’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2012, 76 x 23 cm

I did this painting at the end of December, shortly after we walked Ghlas Beinn on the edge of Rannoch Moor.  When we first did this walk back in December 2009, I did a similar piece.  Both the new painting and the earlier version are based on the view we had looking across to the big hills of the Blackmount.  On both occasions there was snow lying on these big hills making them look very dramatic against the dark skies.  This is one of the paintings I am hoping to show in my exhibition at ‘the gallery on the corner’ in Edinburgh in March.

We’re going back to Rannoch Moor on Tuesday with a bit of luck.  This time though we will be following the tracks east from the Kingshouse Hotel.  Apparently the forecast is for the cold conditions to stay until then …so with a bit of luck we’ll see the moor and its surrounding mountains with more snow.  I’ll hopefully get some ideas for new paintings on this flat winter walk.
