Wow, Amazing sky, great painting :)

Dramatic sky Malcolm bet it was great time.

Thank you Maria and Carole, it was a great time Carole, it is amazing country up there real wilderness.

A great experience and sky Malcolm well done

Probably one of the hardest elements of a sky to capture, sunrise and sunset Malcolm, I'm only speaking from my own experience of course. This is a marvellous sunrise and I love that piece of sky where the wash has granulated on the left....gorgeous. Where abouts in Sutherland?

Thanks Fiona and Dennis for those welcome comments, we were in the Torridon area Fiona, I have been looking for my notes for that trip but can't find them so I cannot give more exact details sorry.

Fiona, I have put a photo of the cottage on my Blog in case you can recognise the area.

Lovely painting Malcolm I like it.

Amazing sky Malcolm, and it all adds up to a great painting.

Thank you Malcolm, replied on your blog.

Love the colours in the sky!

Thanks Lorraine much appreciated.

This is a painting taken from a photograph I took early one morning one February when we were up in Sutherland walking and climbing. This was an amazing cottage and location, it was at the end of a little glen and after collecting the key from a farm some distance off, you drove along a dirt track and it was the only building there. Each morning you looked out and there were deer all around that had come down from the tops in the night, an amazing spot and on this morning the sky was so amazing but so tortured it did not seem real.

I have always loved the outdoors and have climbed and walked in various places in the world, after giving numerous slide shows and talks about my trips to raise money for charity, i realised the slides and photos did not do what i saw justice, so I decided to start trying to paint. I am self taught…
