Here is a link to this work in my Etsy Shop, ElizabethAFox
This is a medium sized original acrylic painting of  the otherworldly landscape of the Quiraing in Skye. The Quiraing is a landslip on the eastern face of Meall na Suiramach, the northernmost summit of the Trotternish on the Isle of Skye, Scotland.

I have spent much time on the Island of Skye, traversing the mountains, camping, bivvying, climbing and painting. In short, I love it there. I have written many accounts of time spent there.

If you would like to see more, it is here on my blog, ‘Not at Home’

I have painted expressionistically, to convey the rugged black needle sharp rocks and the dramatic angles and viewpoints to be had while walking amongst these formations. The first picture shows the full painting, and there are 3 zoomed images to show the details of the brushwork and colour mixing,

The painting is made with acrylic paint onto sized card and has been finished with acrylic varnish to protect the surface
