‘On the hill, West Highlands’, Acrylic & Pastel, 30 x 30 cm

Even in the summer you can’t avoid the bad weather in the Scottish hills and we’ve spent many a day wandering the tops in the mist. That said though, there is still something very special about the landscape when the clouds are down and moving through the hills and glens. You tend to get small areas of brightness filtering down every now and again, picking out the vivid greens of the moss and grass, or suddenly reflecting off of wet and slimy rocks higher up.

This little painting is a few years old now and to be honest I can’t remember exactly where it was based on – but it does I think capture a little of those damp warm summer days in the Highlands…..just need the midges now!
