Dry brush/acrylic on gessoed panel

The wire bridge across the river Blackwater on the Ben Armine estate was the scene of many adventures on our way to and from fishing the hill lochs. One wire for your feet and one for your hands and - whatever you do - don’t look down. Many a plummeting infant has been plucked just short of the torrent and many an adult has been soaked in the process. Above all, don’t bounce. The high-tensile wire is elastic enough to launch a spacecraft. Image painted with dry brush watercolour and acrylic on a gessoed panel while standing firmly on dry land. The painting is framed with black moulded wood and a linen fabric slip.
