Web work, print signing and walking

July 24, 2017
Spent this morning doing some work on  the photo section of this web site to tidy up the headings of the photo galleries.  Then made a start on signing the mounts on my prints.  It's been suggested by a few people that the mounts should be signed and I noticed that other photographers do this. So got my pencil sharpened. After a while I needed some fresh air so slung my camera over my shoulder and headed up the footpath towards Wharton Hall.  I like the sunlight on the stone walls and never tire of the views beyond.

Sunlit Aria

Available as a limited print of either A4, 16x12 or 20x16

Sunset Variety

July 9, 2017
Have been working on the varied sunset shots I took last week from Drummore in Galloway.  Once the sun started to set late in the evening, I was in and out of the house several times as the colours, light and tones changed.  The variety I took over the 4 nights is quite amazing.  Here's just a taster:

Scenery, Sunsets and Sketching

July 6, 2017
In case anyone's wondering why I've been quiet for a few days?  I've been a little busy around Galloway where I've experienced some stunning scenery:

Drummore ( where I stayed )

A very picturesque Port Logan.

Pink sky across Luce Bay from the cottage.

Followed by a Purple and Pink sky 2 days later

Rather allot of bunnies have been spending the evenings in the back garden nibbling the clover.

And wildlife has been abundant on the beaches.

About my Blog

Margaret Shaw My blog summarises my life as an artist. It's a bit like a diary: New artworks completed. Artworks in Progress. Photos I've taken. Things that inspire me. Where I'm exhibiting. Things I've learnt. And anything else that I think blogworthy.
