Well, our week is nearly over. Friday is our last full day in our idyllic little cottage in this most beautiful part of Scotland. (Don't worry, I'll be boring you all with my usual travel review once we get home and sort out our photos next week!)
We've been incredibly lucky with the weather and only had 1day when it rained. I took advantage of that to try to get some more rainy window photos to use as inspiration for my Nature's Magic series of paintings. We were driving right across the North coast that day and spotted a rainbow visible in the sky above some distant hills and so, while S got out of the car to get some shots of it, I stayed in the car and took afew shots trying to focus on the rain drops on the window instead.
I brought my acrylic paints and a couple of tiny blank canvasses with me and once S had uploaded the photos to his laptop I used them as inspiration for another teeny tiny painting which I worked on in the afternoons when we got back from our exploratory drives and long beach walks. Sorry for the photo quality but I had to use my tab so I could upload it direct to Blogger.
I'm linking as always to Paint Party Friday although I'm not sure how to do a hyperlink on my tab so apologies if it doesn't work!
We're totally in love with the North of Scotland and even though the Northern Lights have only put on the briefest show for us so far (the night we arrived) even if we don't see them in all their glory, we've still had the best week in this beautiful part of Britain. That said, we're still keeping our fingers crossed for another glimpse before it's time to go home.
