‘Sunlight and Stones, Beinn a’ Ghlo’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2007, 58 x 34 cm
The paintings I’m currently doing in oil, originate from this small acrylic and pastel piece I did back in 2007. At the time I felt that this was a move forward, away from the very heavy use of pastel and towards a bolder composition. I particularly liked the simple broad bands of colour and mark and now, 5 years on, I’m exploring the possibilities that this painting first suggested.
I always liked this piece; indeed, it was one of the 10 pieces I included in my application for the Jolomo Award 2009. I spent much time trying to work out the best 10 pieces to use for my application but this piece was never in doubt. The painting was bought a couple of years ago ….so if you’re reading this; I hope you’re still enjoying it.
