Does it get any better

"Sunset on a Winter Afternoon" - watercolour - 16 x 26 cm Painting 'en plein air' can often be a battle with the elements, but sometimes it can be pure pleasure. Recently, on a rare winter day with warm sunshine and no wind, I set up my easel outside my back door and painted this.

Lonely Thulachan

"Lonely Thulachan" - watercolour - 24 x 36 cm A few months ago I wrote about the old cottage at Thulachan . I mentioned that it was in a remote location and that not many people visited it any more. This painting gives a better idea of just how isolated it is. I had climbed a nearby hill and made a sketch of the view out over the Flow Country landscape. This is the watercolour I made later from the sketch.
