There’s a temporary ferry running between Uig and Stornoway whilst work is being done on the ferry terminal at Ullapool, presenting the opportunity to do a journey and?to see bits of seascape I couldn’t usually. All I needed was a “ferry weather” day, i.e. sunshine and little wind so the sea would be calm. That day was Friday. The in-house art critic’s comment: “Someone who’s not a good sailor,?subjecting themselves to a six-hour boat trip, must be seriously keen to see the view.”
It was a beautiful journey, calming and mesmerizing, intriguing and familiar, inspiring and overwhelming. I took lots of snapshots of bits of coastline, the view down over Skye to the Cuillin, the snow-topped mainland mountains, the various small islands, the open water…
The ferry itself has all sorts of intriguing shapes and patterns. Geometrical abstract paintings anyone?
I did also sketch, a little. I mostly simply looked and absorbed:

What awasome are your picturesz! I like them very much. All them.
You are as good with the camera as with your watercolor. Kisses Mercedes
