As anyone who reads my blogs will know, we walk bits of the West Highland Way quite regularly…..usually to get to or back from a hill.  I’m hoping this year to put together a series of paintings based on views from, or above this famous long distance path.  I have a number of works already completed that could be included and this painting is one of them.

It is based on a view we had as we were walking back along the WHW between Ba Cottage and the Glencoe ski centre.  We had  been walking the hills to the west of the path and were at the end of what had been a long day when we saw this heavy shower moving towards us across the edge of Rannoch Moor.

The painting is one of ten works  currently showing in the Winter Exhibition at The Biscuit Factory in Newcastle upon Tyne.  The exhibition runs until the end of February so do call in to see it if you live in the city, or are visiting the area.  There is so much to see at The Biscuit Factory that it makes a great day out.  I hope you can get along to see this painting.
