Sketching out the Old Year


Well, the weather hasn't been great so far on this trip up North.  Here's a flavour of that recent storm that blew for two days....

December Storm, Lochcarron, Sketch
In fact it was so bad, I could hardly see out of the window.
Cottage Window Sketch

As soon as the rain stops, I rush out and try and do a little sketch before it rains again...
Lochcarron Corner Sketch



And the other day it was dry enough to get the pastels out. Briefly.
Snow on the Tops, Strathcarron
Yesterday........ 
Loch Torridon Sketch




....yesterday it was a bit better - we had a walk along the shores of Loch Torridon, with great views of the Torridon hills.



Two Pines Sketch



I was determined to sketch some of the beautiful Torridon pine trees.











 
 

Slumbay View Sketch
And today I did a couple of sketches in and around Lochcarron again. It was a bit gloomy!
 









    
Defiant Cherry!



Finally, can't ignore my favourite Cherry Tree.








So...here's to the New Year!  Hope 2014 is a good one for us all!
