Schiehallion oil painting is my latest painting, this mountain in Highland Perthshire – said to be “hill of the faeries” by Visit Scotland is an iconic view point. It can be seen from many summits including Ben Nevis. From the car park at the foot of the mountain, the slopes are easily climbed on a well signed path.
When I climbed this hill unfortunately the mists came down and there was no view from the rocky summit – perhaps it was just fairy dust. So I have chosen to paint the mountain after early autumnal snows had fallen and the view is across Loch Rannoch.
This fine mountain is a favourite view of mine, showing the conical shape and is also known as “the centre of Scotland”. Another good view of this popular mountain can be seen from the easily accessible Queens View Point.
The oil paints I used were Winsor and Newton Alkyd oil paints, they are touch dry overnight. Hahenmule oil prepared paper has been used. I buy my materials mainly from The SAA.
