‘Glen Etive, winter afternoon’


‘Glen Etive, winter afternoon’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2010, 60 x 30 cm

Yesterday we were walking on a hill called Beinn a’ Chrulaiste.   It rises on the north side of the A82 and from its top you look south into Glen Etive.  This painting is based on the same view …but from road level ….and under very different conditions.  On the day in question there was snow on the upper slopes of all the hills and the cloud and mist was shrouding many of the hills ….it was a cold and wintry afternoon.  This is one of four paintings that I did, all based on this moment; I may have to paint some more, but this time under the calm and hazy spring conditions we experienced yesterday.
