Down on the shore at Slumbay, I did this pastel sketch. I spent a while trying to capture the light on the hills, and also working on the foreground - that jumble of shoreline plants.

We had a day on Applecross too, and the sun came out. Went down to Camusteil where it was so warm. Tried to capture that lazy sleepy feeling.
Really glad to get these and other sketches done - hopefully it will kickstart a bit of activity for me back in the studio. But sadly that means that I'm back in Musselburgh where I shall pine for the hills and the wild countryside.
