'A frozen February afternoon, Beinn an Dothaidh'

‘A frozen February afternoon, Beinn an Dothaidh’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2012, 80 x 80 cm

I’ve just, (I think) completed this painting after working on it ‘on and off’ for several months.  It is based on a view we had a few years ago as we made our way below Beinn an Dothaidh and back to the car after a superb winter walk.  We had traversed the hill in almost perfect winter conditions with the snow good and perfect for crampons.

I did a small 30 x 30 cm painting of this scene sometime after the walk but decided more recently to try and tackle the subject on a larger scale.  This is the result.
