Coire an t-Sneachda

Coire an t-Sneachda
Watercolour
25 x 36 cm


This is Coire an t-Sneachda, one of the northern corries of the Cairngorm Massif. The name means 'The Corrie of the Snows' and because of its north-facing position, snow can often be found here well into the summer. It's easily accessible due to its proximity to the ski station, and there is a good path around to it. A very steep path (The Goat Path) leads up from the back of the corrie onto the plateau above.

  1. Hi Keith!... Another strong panorama! I love the nice rhythm that you have created skillfully using aerial perspective to drift the eye to the distant mountain range!

    That nice pinkish orange swab in the middle ground provides a nice "stop"... and unexpected "colour surprise"!

    Nicely done!

    Good painting!
    Regards,
    Bruce

  3. Hi Bruce. I think I may have exaggerated that patch of pink, but it wouldn't be so interesting without it, would it?
