Work of the Week: “Below Mid-Hill, Luss”

´Below Mid-hill, Luss´

"Below Mid-Hill, Luss"

‘Below Mid Hill, Luss’,  Acrylic & Pastel, 2009, 90 x 60 cm Ref: 129

The walk around Beinn Dubh and Mid Hill above Luss is one of my favourites. The hills aren’t huge but they are steep and in winter can offer a surprisingly challenging few hours. This painting is based on just such a day, when on the tops the wind was gusting 50 mph with a wind chill of around -20C and in the shelter of the glen …it was more like spring. What the difference a few hundred metres can make.
