Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Glencoe has always fascinated me. It has an unusual atmosphere and feeling (even if you know nothing of it's history) 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 over texture created with modelling paste. I then glazed, scumbled and rubbed out many times as the image took form and developed a life of its own. It was driven by many memories and experiences including walking in the Highlands as well as painterly references such as the landscape background in the Mona Lisa and the chiaroscuro lighting coming from inside portraits painted by Rembrandt.

Materials used:

oil paint, modelling paste, liquin original and impasto, duck cotton.
