It seems that we've just hit a spell of good weather up here. Sunny crisp days. The hills and summits are so clear. Had a bit of a hillwalk in Strathcarron yesterday and today I had to run over to Torridon to deliver some calendars, so I took the opportunity to do a bit of sketching.
At this time of year, the grasses are wonderful shades of orange and ochre, and the deer grass has sent out its delicate long stems. Here's the sketch I did yesterday on a walk in the Strathcarron hills above Achintee. I was trying to get the pattern of the shadows on the hillside, shadows cast by the rocky outcrops. And the lochan kept changing colour as the wind changed. I was able to take a bit of time as it was warm enough and I was quite pleased with this.
