|Autumn at Loch Ard|
A few weeks back It began as small fragments of torn paper and paint.
layers of gesso were added, this gives you an idea of scale.
A little boat, an autumn blanket.
The lady who commissioned the piece forwarded me some paintings of an area of Scotland called the Trossachs. An area of Scotland I have long admired but spent very little time as I am usually en-route somewhere and see most of it's beauty through the car window. It is an area of wild hills and lochs which have inspired many poets and artists. Sir Walter Scotts poem 'the lady of the lake' was written about the Trossachs region.
These photographs are mine which I took a few days ago as I drove through the area, it gives you an idea of how beautiful it is.
