The Sublime – “Glencoe, Scotland” Oil on Paper

I thought this image was a great example of how nature can emphasise Man’s insignificance. The huge scale, the mist, and the soft light. Based off a still from the film “Skyfall”, it’s the latest outcome from my exploration of the sublime in film. At first I was going to include Bond standing with his Aston in the image, but in the end I liked it just as it was, ambiguous, and more focused on the environment.
