Our Fabulous Scotland Holiday
Our recent trip to Scotland has inspired this little batch of watercolours and sketches. It was so hard to choose from all the photos of stunning scenery that we enjoyed during the holiday.
The Christmas 2012 Painting Challenge.
John and I decided to try the Christmas Painting Challenge again when he came home for the holidays. It was something we initiated last Christmas (2011). We spent 15 enjoyable days of sketching-sessions, that were mostly chosen from scenes around the farmyard.
A few plein-air sketches with John
John came to visit us on the farm, so we did a few plein-air studies, without the pressure of the Challenge at Christmas 2011.
The Christmas 2011 Painting-a-Day Challenge.
During the holidays around Christmas 2011 & New Year 2012, John and I made a 13-day Painting-a-Day challenge, to test our ability to cope with plein-air painting conditions on a regular basis. It was great fun !!
