"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

A few days in Scotland

Siskins on the nut feeders.
Quick pen sketch at dusk looking over the garden wall.

Watercolour study of the forestry plantation on the hillside.

Curlew displaying overhead as I was packing up the car to come home.
An unexpected invite saw us heading north to the Scottish Borders for a few days and a change of scenery.
