St Andrew's is a short drive from where we now live - and one of the most famous things that happens there, in the sporting world is - Golf.
I myself am not interested in golf, but I like a good walk. On a Sunday, no golfers play this particular course and everyone is free to walk around.
This old stone bridge is quite famous amongst the golfing fraternity (the Swilcan Bridge) but I liked it as a nice focal point for a painting.
I hope you do too
The Old Stone Bridge
Painted on St Cuthbert's Mill Saunders Waterford paper. Size 15"x11"
We recently had a day visit to a local attraction - The Scottish Deer Centre.
What a wonderful place to spend a few hours. at one point, we sat and watched the birds of prey display.
We were allowed to take photographs, so I did.
From one of these I created this painting.
On St Cuthbert's Mill Saunders Waterford paper.
If you ever get the chance, do go for a visit. If you love nature and wildlife, you'll enjoy your time there.
In Scotland, there are some magnificent horse sculptures called the Kelpies.
When we went on our Loch Tay cruise, we were told about the Water Kelpies, one of whom was said to live at the bottom of the Loch. They take the shape of horses.
Although I'd painted water kelpies previously, I'd recently got some new art supplies, so I painted them again. This time using ink and pearlescent acrylic ink.
It's hard to see the subtle sparkle on the screen, but as the light changes, so does the way this painting appears.
Even though it was a different medium to watercolour, I still used St Cuthberts Mill Saunders Waterford paper - and it behaved, beautifully.
I hope you enjoy this painting.
