Glengavel Water, mixed media in sketchbook, 18x2x25cm.
Sitting on my little fold-away chair in the sun under the branches of a straggly tree the running water was sending me to sleep like some old cat content to simply be alive.
But that's not why I was out here! I was here to draw, and half-a-mile down the road I spotted this huge buzzard hovering over the hillside:
"Cairnsaigh Hill", charcoal on paper, 30x40cm.
And a mile further on this big lump o' a hill sticking out of the otherwise flat landscape:
"Loudon Hill from the South", charcoal on paper, 30x40cm.
This great rock, with scrubby trees growing out from it's sides like some sort of garnish on a great plum pudding:
"Loudon Hill from the West", charcoal on paper, 30x40cm.
Just enough time to make these charcoal sketches then off home again as the sun dipped towards the horizon.
A happy days work methinks!
