Since returning from The Outer Hebrides at the end of August I have been developing a series of drawings and paintings based on a crofter friend and his peat bank. It has given me the opportunity to revisit some drawing techniques, such as ink and wash, as well as the the pastel techniques had to explore when writing 'Paint Like Degas'. These studies have been developed into a number of oil paintings and charcoal drawings which will be exhibited 14th - 20th December at The Art Club (next door to Coffeeangel, Canonmills).
