About the image:
The scene is a walker climbing up some rough hewn steps on the Llanberis Path up Mount Snowdon in Wales. she is bent over focused on her ascent.

Anyone who has climbed a mountain knows there are times when you are exhausted and want to give up. Mountains are not just physical challenges but mental ones as well. The belief that it is possible is as important to the success of the climb as physical fitness.

The original picture is painted on canvas which has been treated with watercolour ground. The image is created with masking fluid before painting it with watercolour wash covered with clingfilm. Once this is removed the picture is further developed using acrylic inks which are left to dry before the masking is removed to reveal the final picture.

This is a giclee print copy on A4 watercolour paper.
