Snow on Ben Loyal

Snow on Ben Loyal
Watercolour
25.5 x 35.5 cm


Ben Loyal must have looked spectacular in the recent snow. I would have liked to have got over there, but the narrow twisting roads were too icy to attempt the journey. By the time the roads were clear most of the snow had gone, but the mountain still looked imposing, looming over the grey waters of the Kyle of Tongue.

  2. Yes I'm sure you do. It might spoil the view from the top though. :-)

  3. Hi Keith!... Another stunning panoramic view! I love the treatment of the snowy fingers in the mountain tops... very delicate... but very dramatic to the eye!Great aerial perspective as well.

    "You" obviously have a real feel ... and love of these landscapes! Well done!

    Warm regards and Good Painting!

    I am trying my hand at more landscapes these days and had in mind your work the other day when I had the watercolours out (result ended up in bin LOL). It's given me new respect for your paintings! :-)

  9. Yes Rob, if it was all white it probably wouldn't be so interesting.
