There is still dispute over the location of this house as I have used a photo on this occasion to draw the picture of the house and the owner insists it's on the Causewaymire, u am still to find said house!! I combined an outdoor sketch of the wall in the foreground from near bridge of Westfield. There is a mixture if wire, pastel, crayon, acrylic and linseed oil.
Looking out of my window is a treat every day. I never get tired of the changing colours of the sea. This photo was taken mid summer, in the evening and the bay looked like a mill pond. I try to enhance the different shades of grey with the different stones I find by using various polishing techniques and finish off rubbing the stone with olive oil. It's nice to add some essential oil to the mix for an added sensory experience. Two pieces that recently sold, the necklace to a German tourist who was visiting Scotland by cruise ship. The other to a local lady with a love for Caithness.
