Subject for Chester-Le-Street workshop starting 8 Jan 2014 is Sandend on the Moray Firth in Scotland. A quaint fishing village with gable ends facing the sea, washing hanging out on the harbour and old smoke houses.

Sketches done over Xmas

Acrylic painting on 20 x 16 stretched canvas - drawing in pencil then soluble ink.
First wash softened the ink mark so had to be painted downwards so no ink went into the sky.

This shows the design on the cottages with smaller granite pieces placed between the larger granite sets and the plaster highlighted. This called 'Cherry Cocking' and can be found all along the Moray coast.
