‘Winter patterns, Beinn Dorain’ – work in progress


'Winter patterns, Beinn Dorain'


Work in progress:  ‘Winter patterns, Beinn Dorain’, Acrylic & Pastel, 80 x 80 cm

Two or three weeks ago I posted a photo on my Face Book page Keith Salmon – Scottish Landscape Artist. The photo was one that I’d taken several years ago as we were returning from a weekend of walking in Kinlochleven. It was February and the weather had been atrocious ..indeed, it was very severe up on the tops….so much so that on Sunday morning we’d decided to cut our losses and head home early. As we were driving back along the A82 just past Bridge of Orchy we got some amazing views across to the flanks of Beinn Dorain. These slopes are cut by numerous eroded gullies and after the snowfall of the weekend we saw an amazing pattern of snow and grass and crag. I don’t normally take photos out of the car but this was an exception and I always thought I’d like to try and do a painting based on what we saw that day.

To be honest I haven’t really been sure how to paint such a thing and it is only recently that I’ve felt like giving it a try. This is the first painting …still a work in progress …but coming on. I have already started another piece …a view of the slopes from a slightly different angle.
