Morven in March

I painted this last week when there was still some snow on Morven. It's all gone now so maybe that is the last we will have until next winter.

The great thing about this view is that I can paint it from my back porch! There is quite a lot of moorland in front of the mountain, but I have left it out and compressed the view, in order to make the most of the dramatic outline. Compare with this.

  2. Yes thanks René. I already know about Pól and I really like his paintings. I know what you mean about the similar scenery.

  3. I wish the view from my porch looked like that.
    I like the fluid way you lay the washes on. Great painting.

  4. Thanks Stuart. I do feel lucky to have a view like this, but there is a down side - when the wind blows there's nowhere to hide!

  6. That's great, René. Thank you.

    There's a small spelling mistake though. It should be 'passionate', without the 'd'.

    I've already put a link to your blog on my site, but I should have one to your website as well.

    My page looks a bit boring compared with your picture links. I think I'll have to see if I can do something similar.

    Thanks again.
