The Screen Machine

I've not tried doing this before! The reason I didn't get my blog post done yesterday was because I had a girls night out in Ullapool! The Screen Machine came to the leisure centre car park in Ullapool and I went with my neighbour to see Ab Fab. It was funny enough but the best entertainment was to be had just sitting in this amazing cinema lorry. The You Tube video shows the screen machine visiting Islay.

A Fine Day

Nothing really beats, walking with friends in the Highlands. It's so beautiful and empty and a real feeling of leaving all earthly cares behind...

Old and new squares

These are a couple of friendly old squares!
It's the little squares time of year. This years theme is 'Exquisite Bodies' I got mine delivered to the gallery in time. My Exquisite Bodice is a bit tongue in cheek and just a bit of fun. Come along and have a look. There is the members exhibition too and lots and lots of small squares with amazing works of art on them! Come along and see them all here

Bits from the week

Ben Hope (I think) in Sutherland.
The river Ness in Inverness
Across the loch from home
Still playing with watercolour
And a very pretty Dragon Fly

Drawing and not taking pictures

One of the reasons, I think, why I haven't blogged so much is because I've been less interested in using my camera. I can't blog without a camera. I know people do and there are lots of very interesting blogs that rely just on the written word. But I need something very visual. In the meantime I've been playing with watercolour. I like a bit of a messy look and watercolour is very exciting  to work with. Precision and sloppiness both together. 'The Croft on the Rocks' is a print that sold in Cabinet in Ullapool. The others just quick sketches to see how watercolour behaves....quite waywardly I think..!
