‘On Rannoch Moor’


‘On Rannoch Moor’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2011, 76 x 23 cm

This is one of the paintings I had on display at the Courtyard Studios Open Weekend last weekend.  It is now wrapped and boxed along with 18 other paintings, awaiting collection by the courier, for the journey to Speyer.   I had a very good response to these new paintings and it was particularly good seeing them up on the wall together for the first time.  A number of people commented that I was using brighter colours and I think they may be right …although it has not been a conscious decision, more just a case of my getting more confident with using colours.  This is certainly one of the brightest paintings that I’ve done of Rannoch Moor and although it can be a dark and brooding place in poor weather, when the sun comes out it can be full of colour.

My exhibition in Speyer opens on Friday 21st October and after seeing some of these paintings together for the first time last weekend, I think it should be quite a good show.  I hope you can get to see it.  I’ll be having the exhibition photographed so you’ll be able to see it on-line in a few weeks time.
