A Week On The Isle of Arran

What a beautiful inspiring place Arran is. It is described as Scotland in miniature and it certainly is with mountains, standing stones, rivers, lochs and stunning views wherever you turn.
We had perfect weather for photographers and painters, lots of sunshine but with heavy showers producing sparkling scenes, great skies and rainbows. I think this photo is probably the best of the whole holiday and was taken on Machrie Moor.  I painted it en plein air as well as now in the studio. I am also working on a lino print of it....very much value for money!
Below my painting sketches completed in situ.

                                                                                            We were really lucky to see lots of local         wildlife too, red squirrels, golden eagles, common and grey seals as well as red deer..magic.
