Artist's description:

The Black Cuillin or "Sgurr nan Gillean", to use its Gaelic name, is an impressive mountain on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. With its craggy peaks and the almost inaccessible pinnacle or “In Pin”, it is a challenge for climbers and a spectacular motif for photographers and artists.
This painting was painted on site in mid-April. The freezing cold wind was so strong that is was impossible to use an easel and so I propped up my painting board against a small raised piece of ground and knelt beside it with all my equipment spread out on a picnic rug. This way, both my painting and I were out of the wind and I could focus on capturing the scene in front of me in watercolour.
I first drew the peaks and a quick sketch of the surrounding landscape. It was important to draw the peaks quickly as it is very seldom that you can see all of them as they are often shrouded in mist. In fact, by the time I was finished painting they were completely enveloped in low-lying cloud. Next I painted the interesting sky which threatened to bring rain. Then, I concentrated on the snowy crags and how the dark grey rock merges into the lower-lying heathery moorland with all its subtle colours and interesting grasses and heathers.
This ia an outdoor painting created in Sligachan on the Isle of Skye.
