Ring of Brodgar

Stone Circle

Ring of Brodgar (Stone Circle) by summerlands Posting up a couple of Brodgar I painted in the field in Feb '11 - I resisted posting them before as they are not 100% accurate (the working conditions were a bit distracting, if exhillerating!) but I feel they capture a 'vibe of place' that perhaps a photo can't always, and therefore still useful to post I hope :-)...
'An Hour in Icy Wind at Brodgar' 12 x24", acrylic on canvas.

I've been admiring this pic... I love it on your site where it shows the painting in progress and the position the painting was created from!

Hee hee I saw just sat on a cushion thing and it was soooo cold! I got frozen into position and had to get my husband to physically *lift me up* to standing when I was done (good job I wasn't on my own, otherwise Brodgar might have gained an ice mummy and easel art installation by accident). But the light was fab and welll worth it :-D There are more pic's on the blog... I want to do the trip all over again! :-D summerlands Posted by summerlands
