In case anyone's wondering why things have been quiet around here - I've been away in the Highlands of Scotland for a few weeks.  I've had a wonderful time exploring the beaches, meeting some interesting wildlife, sketching and photographing.  The photos will take some time to sort out.  In the meantime here's the sketches:

Dusk at Burghead

Seal in Burghead harbour

Cullen Beach - I think this is where we're going to stay next year. 

Highland Cow - went through the paper trying to get the left eye right.
