Another stormy sea attracted my attention, close to Callekillie.

My next stop was Fearnmore. Usually I go further and don't stop until Fearnbeg, but I was thinking I should visit all these Applecross villages (in time) and do some sketching in each, so Fearnmore beckoned. As this part of Applecross was in the lee of the stormy wind, I decided I could get out and sketch. Went down to the natural harbour, and was excited by this lovely corrugated iron fishing hut. I got out the graphite stick and some oil crayons.

It is interesting how these old corrugated iron buildings are almost the same colour as their context - I did this sketch of an old fishing shed in the south of Applecross on Wednesday. I'm sorry I didn't do this sketch in colour to capture the colour relationship between the corrugated iron, the stonework and the bracken, but hey ho, I used graphite stick instead....and I took some photos to capture the colour.
