Camusfearna 9"x11" Acrylic on Board
Camusfearna is Gavin Maxwell's name for Sandaig on the mainland just across the water from Skye. It is where he wrote 'Ring of Bright Water' and it is an atmospheric place. It was a perfect Highland Autumn day - warm, dry and calm - even the midges were taking a break. I did a quick watercolour sketch and took some photos but it was too nice to work so I ate my lunch and lay on the rocks and looked at the side of Kate's face as the sunlight came streaming across the water and thought would'nt it be great if it could be like this all of the time.
