The Christmas Carol ‘Good King Wensleslass’ has the words: ‘Earth as hard as iron, water like a stone’ . So appropriate here just now. Winter has returned to Scotland and the UK – just to show it can!
Over the last couple of days I have continued sketching the trees outside – through the studio windows.
Yesterday we went out for a walk in brilliant sunshine. Crisp air, sharp blue sky.
We came back in a white out as 3 or 4 inches fell on us.
And the world went white. It was such an opportunity to paint this subject, changing all the time.
