On the edge of Rannoch moor, December

‘On the edge of Rannoch Moor, December’
Acrylic & Pastel, 2010, 76 x 23 cm

This is another of the paintings I’ve completed since our memorable short walk on the edge of Rannoch Moor back in late December. It really was a wonderful mixture of light and colour that day. As the big threatening clouds wandered by it would suddenly become quite dark for a few minutes with just odd patches of dim sunlight catching the moor-land grass. In this painting I’ve used a gold acrylic mixed with other colours to try and capture a little bit of the magic as the sun catches the beautiful winter vegetation.
