‘From the slopes of Sgorr nam Fiannaidh, Glen Coe’

‘From the slopes of Sgorr nam Fiannaidh, Glen Coe’, Oil & Pastel, 2004 – 2006, 85 x 49cm,

This is a rather tenuous link to this week’s blog.   In it you’ll read that I’ve just finished a painting that was commissioned by a gentleman we met near the summit of Mam na Gualainn back in August.

The painting shown here however looks out over Loch Leven towards Mam na Gualainn and started off as an oil painting only. About that time I was also experimenting with using pastel with the paint….completing the painting in oil and only once it was dry, working over the surface with an oil pastel. I was pleased with the way it came out in the end and included it as one of the six paintings in my successful 2009 Jolomo Award application.
