‘Breaking mists, the Pap of Glen Coe’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2011, 80 x 80 cm
Nothing like plugging my exhibition next month is there?! This is of course, one of the paintings that will be included in the show. Based on a couple of earlier smaller paintings I did, this tries to capture the moment when the thick cloud suddenly broke and we got brief but beautiful views across to the Pap of Glen Coe and down towards Loch Leven. At 80 x 80 cm this painting is considerably larger than the earlier versions and as such I’ve had more room to explore the colours and marks in this piece….the paint is slightly thicker with more surface texture and the colours are brighter. As with most of my bigger paintings, this piece will be exhibited in a broad simple cream coloured wooden frame with a thin gold slip between the frame and the painting. It has also been framed without glass so that the surface marks can be seen more easily.
The exhibition, ‘On the hill – impressions of the Scottish upland landscape’ will run from February 12th – March 12th 2011. I hope you can get along to see this piece along with 44 other paintings and drawings. If it’s too far to travel then images of all the work should be available to view on The Strathearn Gallery website shortly
