"Sunlight on the Old Man" - watercolour - 13 x 18 cm Another very small painting and probably the last one this small that I'll do for a while. The small size doesn't make them any easier to paint. If anything, the difficulty seems to increase as the size decreases. I feel the need for more space for freer brushstrokes. The subject of the painting is the famous rock stack, known as The Old Man of Hoy, in the Orkney Isles.
