This is the first painting I produced on the dedicated trip, I woke up early enough to be disturbing a group of deer about 500 metres from the lodge which was magical. I was determined to get the painting kit up into the hills, which was proving more of a struggle than expected. Once set up and I stopped moving it wasn’t long before I was feeling the cold but I endured as much as I could over 2 days to get this painting finished. The path highlighted with trapped snow is a strong device to lead us into the painting.
