Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

I've always had a fascination for Glencoe, and it's haunting atmosphere. There is something almost overwhelming about its vastness, remoteness and stark beauty.
I painted this over several weeks, beginning with an underpainting in Raw Sienna and white. I then glazed, scumbled and rubbed out many times as the image took form and developed a life of its own. It was inspired by personal memories and experiences and includes references to the style of the landscape background in the Mona Lisa. as well as the chiaroscuro lighting used by Rembrandt. This has the effect of light emanating from within the image.
Rather than to make a visual record of the place, it was my intention to convey something of the spirit, atmosphere and feeling of Glencoe and it's poignant and tragic history.

Materials used:
