Just returned from a week in a cottage on the west coast of Scotland. Managed to get out and paint on location a couple of times. I really enjoyed the process - made me paint more quickly because of the cold so the paintings have more energy than my studio work. Can’t wait to get out to Apley and do some more now that I have worked out the logistics of making oil paintings ‘en plein air’!
