‘On Beinn Damh, Torridon’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2015, 148 x 210 mm.
This small painting is one of six works I currently have showing in the Art Exposure Gallery on The Great Western Road in Glasgow. The exhibition ends this weekend so only a couple of days to see it if you haven’t managed to get along so far.
I did this little painting after we climbed Beinn Damh several years ago. We had hoped to get some superb views but alas the weather didn’t co-operate and for the most part we were following the compass and walking in thick cloud. That said, we did get this one brief view of the summit but it only lasted for about five minutes at the most. It was well worth it though and if I’m ever up in this part of the North West Highlands again, I’ll definitely be heading back up this fine mountain.
