‘From the east ridge of Ben Lui, April afternoon’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2011, 76 x 23 cm

The latest of the new small paintings, this is revisiting a scene I first painted as a 30 x 30 cm piece.  Based on a wonderful day a few years ago when we did our first proper winter scramble.  It was very exciting and we only got as far as this level half way point on the ridge.  Stunning views out to the east though, despite the heavy skies.
