Wanderlust
2019

 

Two new references are used,the central image of a tent and the diagram of the rock climbing routes on Lochnagar from the"red" Cairngorm Guide. The diagram tent is a 2man Bukta Wanderlust painted from the original 60's brochure (a gift from a fellow artist.)It was my first tent. I climbed these rock routes in my late teens.the hardest being Eagle Ridge, graded Severe. The Upper section of the painting, I think of as an amalgam of Bothys within a diagram landscape taken together with parts repeated from previous works.
