‘Towards Glen Coe, late afternoon, January’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2014, 80 x 80 cm
This is the latest 80 x 80 cm acrylic and pastel painting I’ve completed. It’s based on the view looking towards Glencoe on a very cold January afternoon. We’d had a short but enjoyable walk in deep snow up the Devil’s Staircase but the snow was too bad to venture up on the tops as we’d planned and so we’d retreated and were heading home. It was a long way to drive for such a short walk but that’s the way it goes sometimes and at least I got a painting out of it!
The painting is currently hanging in my studio at the Courtyard Studios in Irvine so if you’re in the area, do call in to see it. I’ll be in the studio this weekend from 12 noon until 19.30 both days.
