Late Summer Clouds, Assynt


A classic view of Canisp and Suilven, the Assynt giants, from the well-known viewpoint between Lochinver and Clachtoll.

Late August, the trees are still in full leaf but there are ominous dark clouds gathering, casting deep shadows and fleeting shafts of light on the mountain slopes.

I painted this pastel in the studio, and took a photograph of each stage of the process, to create a detailed, ‘step by step’ guide to how I approached this painting. This step-by-step guide is now available to purchase and will be sent by e-mail as a PDF file.

Size approximately 35cm x 20cm, plus mount and frame

Double-mounted in a textured ‘antique’ white and framed in a modern, lightly distressed, shallow profile, dull silver frame.

Price: £230 This painting is now SOLD

Being a pastel, this painting is too fragile to be sent by post and will need to be collected from Lochinver. Alternatively, delivery might be possible by arrangement. Please contact me for options.
