Another cottage south of Fearnbeg also caught my eye. I really love the juxtaposition of the pine tree and the house. I have sketched it a few times before, but in charcoal or ink. So this time I did a quick pencil sketch.

I also did a colour study, making an attempt to try and capture the colours of Applecross quickly in pastel. There is an official viewpoint in between these two cottages where there is the most fantastic view of Rhona, Raasay and Skye. I cheated and sat in the car to do this sketch - while the rain drizzled and the north wind blew.

But now we are back in Musselburgh. Very sad to leave the north-west, but I have a head full of vivid images. I'll try to keep these images alive in the studio on Monday.
