  1. There are amazing views from the top of this mountain. The landscape in this whole area is really inspiring !The view of Larun with autumn beeches (see previous watercolours) was seen from here. At the top of Alkuruntz (93m) is a rocky outcrop. Nearby are 2 megaliths which interestingly are on a view line with Larun (a significant mountain to the West)and with Ori ( a mountain of just over 2000m a long way inland to the East).

    The forest in the foreground is mainly beech. A path (the GR11) leads round to the ridge on the right and beyond.

  2. Hi Tina,

    Thank-you very much for commenting again-you’re so positive.

    I’ve loved the Basque mountains for ages but it’s taken me until now to dare to attempt painting them. Now I’ve started though, I feel like I don’t ever want to stop !
    One of the many reasons the landscape here particularly appeals to me for painting is for the wonderful underlying structure & simplicity of form.
