Have spent some time this week playing with paint.  It's been awhile since I used my inktense pencils so did a small picture of Staffin Beach with them.



When I spotted the work of Jay Nottingham in a gallery in Portree I thought I'd have a go.  This time I got out the watersoluble pastels.  Jays works in oils so my attempt wasn't likely to be very successful.  May have another go "in the syle of" using acrylics.



I spent an afternoon with Marion Body Evans and had the opportunity to play with Daniel Smith watercolours - I was impressed.



Did a picture of a waterlily that went wrong when I did the pads to large.  Next I did a background for a sunset which I finished off with inktense pencils after the workshop.
