This recent painting is just one of ten pieces that I delivered to The Biscuit Factory in Newcastle upon Tyne on Thursday.  The work will be part of their Autumn Exhibition that opens on September 12th.  I’ll be posting full details a little nearer the time.

This painting is based on a view we had almost exactly a year ago when we took some friends for a short walk up the Devil’s Staircase in Glen Coe.  From the high point we had a wonderful view out across to the Mamores which were visible amongst broken clouds.  The whole scene made a wonderful patchwork of colour, light and shade.
