Photos: Sketching at the Old Pier, Broadford

The old pier at Broadford is a location that looks quite different when the tide is out or in. Yesterday being one of those bright but nippy spring days saw me sketch for a bit, warm up in the nearby Bread Shed (gluten-free cake and coffee!), pop into Old Pier Gallery to check I wasn’t needed for anything, then out again.

I did not climb down these stairs! I walked along the beach.

    1. Thank you Natalya!
      Yes, this location will make a wonderful large painting but it’ll be some time before I decide on a composition as there are so many options! Looking to the shore or looking out to sea for starters. I suspect I shall do a whole lot of small ones while figuring out my favourite.

      1. My choice would be – Both!
        1Lirical view including both shores, bay, pale purple mountains and clouds and 1 picture of colourful boats with background of the grayroofed buildings among reddish bushes and greenish grass under the blue-gray sky.

        1. I love that little watercolour box ( watercolour envy:) ) I am so intrigued by your new exhibition and all those wonderful flower paintings..!

          1. It’s a fab little set — even has a tiny brush that I’ve somehow managed not to loose! Hope you can make it to Skye in July to my exhibition; be interested to hear your thoughts after seeing paintings in real life. I can’t wait to see your paintings for your Skyeworks Gallery exhibition next month.
