Spring!

Hello! I hope this finds you all well. 

After incredible sunsets, morning frosts, balmy winds and sunshine sparkling on the loch we're now in the middle of 4 or 5 days of very strong winds. Otherwise it’s still incredibly quiet here in the Highlands with Scotland on lockdown for the time being. I’ve continued to do the online art classes three times a week and they’ve been really well attended. I’m enjoying seeing people! 

 

After the 20 minutes mini art history talk everyone has had a go at all the varied art exercises we’ve tried from German Expressionist portraits in charcoal to Impressionist views from their windows and this week collages and photomontages inspired by Dada. So many people consider themselves beginners so I’m even more grateful for their willingness to jump in at the deep end and the work is really inspiring to see. There are also quite a few families taking part which is great. We've done several still lifes and I've just managed to get a chance to post the one above onto my site for sale. Click on
