‘The Cobbler from Ben Donich – a damp summer day’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2011, 76 x 23cm

The Arrochar hills are a fine group of hills all packed into quite a small area.  Although not the highest, the Cobbler is without doubt the most eye catching with its distinctive outline.  We caught this brief view of it the other summer when we were walking Ben Donich the lies just a short distance to the north west of it.  It was quite a damp day if you were over on the Cobbler but incredibly despite the dark threatening cloud that enveloped most of the hills …we remained dry and were able to just stand and watch…..we even caught a bit of sun as we arrived at the summit I seem to remember.  It never ceases to amaze me just how localised conditions can be in the Scottish hills.
