‘Towards Achaladair, December morning’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2013, 30 x 30 cm
This little painting is the first piece to be completed in 2013. I posted an image of it the other day on my Face Book page, Keith Salmon – Scottish Landscape artist, but at the time it wasn’t quite finished. It was harsh with more contrasts and the whole had a very flat appearance. I said at the time that I’d probably have to do some more work on it ….and I did….and here it is.
The painting, a view looking towards Achaladair from the west, tries to capture a little of the cold December morning as we headed off along the undulating ridge towards Ghlas Beinn. For a while, a small bank of mist rolled up the glen below us and it made for a very atmospheric scene.
This painting will be included in my exhibition at ‘the gallery on the corner’ in Edinburgh during March.
