'On Beinn a Ghlo, Autumn'

‘On Beinn a’ Ghlo, Autumn’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2011, 80 x 80 cm

This is another of the new 80 x 80 cm paintings. This painting is closely based on a small piece I did several years ago. This was completed after a walk on the high broad stone covered ridges of Beinn a’ Ghlo. It had been a day of great contrasts – heavy very dark clouds but with occasional breaks, allowing bright sunshine through and creating wonderful colours. This recent painting is more abstract I guess. I’ve just been concentrating on the colours, marks and texture.
