Plein Air

One of my favourite places to work plein air – Gott Bay, Tiree.
Recently I have got back into experiencing the landscape and recording responses to it in drawing or paint. Despite the physical challenges (midges, wind blowing materials) I am enjoying the immediacy of it and I think the results are getting better.
