A Scottish Landscape.
We have a marvellous few saying about the Scottish landscape and its weather. One is, "if you stand in the same place for too long you will experience all four seasons in one day." The other, "it is not bad weather it is just you who are wearing the wrong clothes."
We certainly have an ever-changing and varied weather which in turn brings wonderful atmospheric landscapes scenes.
I tried to capture this in this very abstract paintings. Abstract and yet obviously landscape in nature. I cover the canvas with texture before applying the paint. Normally I paint very fast but in this case i gave the texture a full day to dry. This meant I could look at it and get a feel for it.
I then applied the paint slowly and colour by colour allowing it to mix on the canvas.
As I look at it now I am thinking I might apply one or two small sections of purple but as usual full of doubt about whether it is finished or not.
I also have doubts about how to hang it. In a frame with glass or in a frame with a deep coat of varnish which might show the texture better than behind glass?
