‘On Blackmount, December afternoon’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2012, 30 x 30 cm
If you read the blogs, you’ll know that we were out walking Ghlas Beinn on the edge of Rannoch Moor just a couple of weeks ago. The light and colours gave the mountains of the Blackmount great atmosphere. This painting, still in progress, is my first attempt at trying to capture some of the mood of the place that afternoon. I’m planning to start several more while the memories are still fresh in my mind. I may well work on some new drawings too …I really like the contrast between the snow covered mountains and the dark heather and grass covered moor lands below. If this painting is completed successfully, I’ll be exhibiting it in my exhibition at ‘The gallery on the corner’ in Edinburgh …..make a note in your diary …the preview is March 1st and the exhibition will run until the end of the month.
