‘January afternoon, the Rest and Be Thankful’

‘January afternoon, the Rest and Be Thankful’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2010, 60 x 27 cm

I’ve walked all the hills that surround the Rest and Be Thankful and the views from all of them are impressive. This said however, the views from down in the pass take some beating, especially when the steep sided hills are covered in snow and ice. This painting is based on the view of Beinn Luibhean as we saw it on an icy January day the other winter. I’ve use quite large brushes on this painting, applying much of the translucent paint in broad strokes. It’s not the most accurate painting in the world but hopefully it conveys some of the intense cold of that late January afternoon.

This painting will be exhibited along with five other new works, as part of the ‘New Gallery Artists’ exhibition at the gallery in Edinburgh – opens end of October. Full details to come shortly.
