‘November afternoon, below Stob Coire Raineach’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2011, 80 x 80 cm

Here is the latest of my new 80 x 80 cm paintings. We drive over Rannoch Moor and down through Glen Coe a good few times every year and the place never ceases to amaze me. Whatever the weather, the season or time, it always impresses. Sometimes it is almost completely filled with mist and cloud, other times hills rise steeply above you on all sides, clear and bright. Stob Coire Raineach always draws my attention …we did a scramble up the front of this hill a number of years ago with our friend Guy. I remember one especially slippery little set of crags we had to get over …with a big drop behind us..I imagine my language wasn’t too choice at the time …but I made it. This is the second largish painting I’ve done of this hill …and it probably won’t be the last.
