Slioch in Winter

This is beautiful Val! A majestic scene.

Super pastel work Val and stunning Scottish scenery!

Thanks Sarah and Debs, much appreciated.

Excellent ! Really captures the bulk of Slioch, love the colors in the bright highland clear air.

Stunning colour Val, that blue against the rust colour looks super!

like the pastel work Val and the subject, another nice one .

I really like the composition, striking colours adding to the drama.

Many thanks Kevin, Louise, Graham, Rosalind and Glennis this is just the boost I need to get me back painting :)

Hi Val you haven't lost your touch a beautiful painting. I have not been on this site much since losing Max a year ago. I was in hospital for three months Betty

Sorry, I missed this one, Val (too taken up with producing one-liners!). This has all the magic and rich colours of Scotland and it has almost taken on an abstract quality with the swathes of colour criss-crossing the painting. A beautiful scene well captured.

Thank you Betty and Thea for your lovely comments. Betty it's so nice to hear from you again, take care and I look forward to seeing more of your scratchboards. I hope you are still doing them, they were great. Thea, I'm pleased you felt it had a slight abstract quality to it because that is what struck me about the scene too. I must give your one liner challenge a go :)

So glad I have found your work Val. This is a beautiful pastel full of gorgeous colours...

Not done very much all summer for various reasons but slowly trying to get back into it. This is soft pastel on pastelmat and though I have several of my own images of Slioch, mainly in spring and summer, I used a reference photo by Paul Acarnley on PMP for this winter scene. Thanks for taking a peek :)
