We have been home a week, but I am still adjusting and feeling like I’m not on top of anything. Life always seems to return full-on. But, for now a few more sketches. They follow our trip to the very north of Scotland, over to the Orkneys and then back down the west coast to Ullapool. They were all done outside, sometimes in the rain, sometimes completed on the spot and sometimes paint added later. What I love most about sketching is how each sketch, no matter the quality, brings back the essence of my time in that location–the day, the weather, the conversations around etc. So you are experiencing the place on a deeper level not only when you are doing the sketch, but each time you look at them again.
