St Mary's, Isles of Scilly

Been scanning my old boat paintings. This was from my first (and last) sailing adventure - from Falmouth to the Scilly Islands via Penzance in 1992. It's our good ship Jasper parked in St Mary's Harbour with a coke can gently drifting by.

3 spider webs

I was about to clean the window to our dining room on this bright sunlit autumn morn when I saw this structure of 3 overlapping webs..... the windows will have to stay slightly smeared for a while! See the spider on the left hand web.

On a very shaky train back from Scotland last Thursday. Half way between Glasgow and Lockerbie in the Lowther Hills near Moffat, I looked at the scene, closed my eyes to fix it, opened my iPad (and eyes) and painted this in my Auryn Ink app.

Autumn leaves in Dundee last Wednesday - using the Auryn app on my iPad - I like the watercolour effect.

Last Tuesday afternoon - the Debating Chamber at the Scottish Parliament Building. They were debating whether Scottish MP's should be paid if/when they're in prison (it must happen a lot for it to take up so much time in a Parliament!) What a modern building inside and out, I could spend a lifetime drawing this one - it's architectural poetry! It wasn't easy to draw that roof structure in less than an hour - can see why the construction ended up 3 years late and 10 times over budget. The building's (Spanish) architect Enric Miralles died in 2000 (at the so young age of 45) and 4 years before the building was completed.

Edinburgh Castle again - in silhouette. The blinding sun was directly behind the Castle hence the lack of detail!

Edinburgh Castle

Tuesday 10th September. Edinburgh Castle from Princes Street Garden with the Scottish National Gallery in the foreground. Beautiful sunny day - I had to move the wooden bench I sat on to get a better view - I told an interested passer-by that it was easier than moving the tree that was blocking my view.
