A beautiful sunny day, so after spending all of it so far indoors manning (womanning?) the Callanish exhibition Jane and I decided, after closing time, to grab our sketchbooks and paints and head out to Bosta beach on the small island of Great Bernera. What a stunning location! The wind was a little chilly but we hunkered down in a sheltered spot, accompanied only by the lively local rabbits and set to capturing the scene.
Here is my sketch – fineliner pen and a little watercolour added. The weird looking object in the sea is the tide bell which I believe is no longer working? I also did a few sketches of the rabbits which didn’t stay still for more than a few seconds at a time!
