• ‘Glencoe in the Snow’, oil on linen panel, 20x30cm •
Hello folks! …I’ve not posted any paintings for a while - not because I haven’t been painting but because I have been painting pictures to make into Christmas cards and thought it was a bit early to post them! I must admit there’s nothing quite like painting wintery/Christmassy scenes to put you in the mood for Christmas early (I started 2 months ago 😁 so I am disproportionately excited already! 🎅🏼🎄❄️). We had our first thin covering of snow last week so it feels socially acceptable to post this image now!
I also want to mention that the Christmas cards will be available for sale at a Christmas pop up shop I’ll be running at The Souter’s Shop in Monymusk, Aberdeenshire next Saturday and Sunday (30th Nov and 1st Dec) as part of the @neopenstudios offering. If you happen to be in the area please pop by to say hi! We’ll be open as follows:
Saturday 30th - 10am-4pm
Sunday 1st - 10am-4pm
The painting (as you may have guessed from the title!) is of a wintery scene in Glencoe. This area is very worth your while to visit, it’s stunningly beautiful in summer but it’s absolutely breathtaking in winter…even on a gloomy day, I think the bad weather can even add something to this exquisite wilderness!
Last but not least, I need to thank @david_drover for letting me use his lovely photograph as a reference for painting this picture (and another one which I will post soon). David is a family friend, all round good guy and talented photographer - I think his Scottish wildlife scenes in particular are excellent! I don’t normally work from photographs but there was no snow around at the time that I wanted to paint and I’d remembered that David had taken some lovely snowy photos.
P.S. Public service announcement - for anyone who does want to paint a picture from a photograph, make sure you get the copyright owner’s consent first! .
