I did this painting a couple of years ago after a very enjoyable first visit to Culter Fell in the Scottish southern uplands.   It is a wonderful area and on the spring day we were there, it was looking at its very best.  The colours were beautiful with the grass greening up a little in the glen.  Higher up there were still large areas of snow on the north facing slopes of the hill and we made a bit of a detour so that we could get close to them.  I have to say that it was a really special day and one that sticks in my memory.  We’ll no doubt visit this hill again but I can’t imagine it looking better than it did on our first trip there.
