'On Beinn a' Ghlo, autumn'

‘On Beinn a’ Ghlo, autumn’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2010, 30 x 30 cm

At the end of the summer a couple of years ago we got up very early and drove up to Beinn a ‘ Ghlo, the big range of hills near Beinn a ‘ Ghlo. It was the perfect early autumn day, warm with hazy sun and the clouds well above the tops …and a slight breeze to keep the midges off. Earlier that summer we’d been and walked Carn Liath, the closest of the three Munroe that make up Beinn a’ Ghlo. This time we wanted to walk its other two tops. It made for quite a big day but as we’d left Irvine around 4.30am we’d a lot of day to play with and it proved a wonderful walk. This little painting tries to capture something of the rather hazy views we had that day.
