‘Above Loch Tulla, passing shower’


‘Above Loch Tulla, passing shower’, Acrylic & Pastel, 60 x 60 cm (work in progress)

With my sight as it is, I rarely get to see rainbows …most are far too faint for me to see. Occasionally though if the skies are very dark and dramatic, I can make them out.

This is a painting I’m currently working on and is based on just such a moment. The rainbow was quite bright and looked wonderful against the dark skies and rich autumn colours of the surrounding hillside. We saw this view several years ago and I’ve already tried twice before to do a painting about it. This is the third attempt …the first two being scrapped. I’m certainly happier with this attempt but at the moment can’t make up my mind abut it ….it’s going to need some time I think. Interestingly as anyone who reads my blog may recall, we were walking on the same hill just a few weeks ago and similarly saw another very bright rainbow over Loch Tulla ….it must be the place to go for rainbows!
