"From Carn Chois, above Loch Turret"

‘From Carn Chois, above Loch Turret’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2010, 30 x 30 cm

I’m not sure whether to describe this as a drawing or a painting!  It probably has more scribbled pastel in it than paint and it certainly feels more like a drawing.  Anyway, I was trying to get something that put over a little of the scratchy nature of these upland heather moors especially as we experienced them with a slight scattering of snow on them.  This early snow catches the wild life out a little too.  When we were on these hills the other week, Nita spotted two mountain hares …one, in its full winter coat of white, and another still dressed in its summer cart of brown fur.  So long as the white one sat on the patches of snow and the brown one sat in the heather they were ok, but if they moved onto the wrong ground they could be seen more easily.
