Have returned from another trip to the West HIghlands and Isle of Skye. Weather terrible from walking point of view, but wonderful from painting perspective. Rain equals clouds, moody skies and rainbows. Have returned full of inspiration and work is flowing well.
Have just returned from a week’s trip staying on Loch Duich and having day trips to Skye. My first time so far North. What an amazing place. I’ve never visited anywhere I wanted to paint so much. The light is incredible, dusk lasts for about an hour and a half and gives great opportunities for painting. I loved to see the sky reflected in the Lochs especially from the Skye bridge where the sea becomes opalescent after sunset. So, I’ve started work on 3 paintings to begin with although my head is literally full of images wanting to emerge onto canvas (or wood panel). I expect to be painting Scotland for many months to come….
