Coire na Ba

Okay that’s that one finished, 23cm x 30cm. People who saw the film ‘Stardust’ may recognize the site of Ricky Gervaise’s shop atop this hill. I called the painting after the Coire rather than the Buttress, which is unpronounceable. Its a weird hill, from certain angles it looks like a friendly scramble and calls to me – from a distance it becomes apparent that its thousands of feet of slippery vertical death, even for someone with fully functioning knees and feet.

meanwhile I’m working on some small paintings for Tore Gallery Christmas Show. There is the Highland Cow, ceilidh dancers, spinning ladies- to save confusion I’ve decided to put progress pictures up one painting at a time. The coo is nearly there, stand by…
