Returning to Scotland was a bit of a shock. It’s cold, wet and grey. But our sky is much more interesting.

Three sketch studies and the finished painting, created on commission. Though I like the looseness of the quick studies I really enjoyed spending time adding detail into the final picture.Rough_02 copy Rough_03 copyThe pink sketch I rejected for being too pink, though I used some of the light suggested by it in my final composition. I still like the blue one above, but it feels very cold and this painting was intended to hang in a living room!Rough_01 copy 2 Alps_03 copy 2
