‘West, from Beinn Griam Mor, Sutherland’, Oil on canvas, 2012, 80 x 80 cm

I finally finished this painting a few days ago ….after much time and work.  Indeed, I think I’ve been working on this piece for over two months.  Anyway, here it is …and I’m quite pleased with it.  It is certainly one of the better of the new oil paintings I think.

The painting is based on the views we had back in May, as we walked Beinn Griam Mor in the Flow Country of Sutherland.  As we looked out over the low bog country towards the high ground to the west, there was just this wonderful natural pattern of colour and texture.  I’ve put the oil paint down in broad overlapping bands in an attempt to try and mimic the view out over this wild northern landscape.  The painting is to be framed next week but will then be at my studio for a while should anyone wish to visit and see it.  You can contact me at my studio on 07742 437425.
