It seems to me there are very few paintings/prints from the summits of mountains, when you consider that one of the main motivators of climbing the mountain in the first place, is the view! So I am making a concerted effort to rebalance this situation.
First attempt from Cul Mor with reputedly beautiful views across Assynt and Coigach - unfortunately we arrived in a snow storm in May - even if I could have been persuaded to get my paints out - there would have been little to see although what was seen was dramatic!
Second attempt from the summit of Cul Beag - in the pipeline.
3rd from Quinag - not really happy with the composition but could be tweaked.
From Suilven - sadly in a cloud! - I will have to go back for the view.
So this is the view from Canisp. I am not totally happy with it - might need to play with it.
For geologists - quartzite rocks on the top of Canisp. Torridonian sandstone ( Suilven) and everywhere else cnoc and lochan gneiss.
The image below is the watercolour sketch painted en plein aire at the top of Canisp - in the sun - way hey. I mainly work from watercolour sketches - I find photographs very difficult to work from
