This is from a series of 3 paintings all of the sea. They are all 3cm x 3cm on a 20cm square piece of mountboard, and again, they look much better in person and as a series.

I promised to do a giveaway when I hit 100 followers a couple of weeks ago. I forgot to do it when I did hit 100 but have no fear, I'm doing it now. Put up a comment on this post, then I'll put everyone's names into some kind of randomizer thing and who ever wins can have a print of their choice! Good luck.

I didn't manage to get to Rum in the end. I hadn't factored in the possibility of storms or bad weather in winter in Scotland for some reason, but I did however manage to get to the neighboring island of Eigg instead, and I'm really glad I did.
These are a couple of things which I've been working on today. The top two framed drawings are based on photographs I took whilst up north. I traced my walks as one continuous line over a map of the island, transferred the route onto a bit of mount board and made the second drawing out of it. I quite like the idea but I think I can do a lot more with it.

It started off as a bit of a silly challenge to see if we could do it, but it actually turned out to be quite a nice project about being two little boys on an adventure. We initially intended to get to Glasgow which is close to 70 miles, but at a steady pace of 1 mile an hour that goal stopped being realistic pretty quickly.
Totally different from my usual stuff, I know, but it was a lot of fun all the same. There's a short youtube video about it and this is a link to the pages of the book.
