In May I got a bicycle and began riding out to Bonaly Country Park to sit in the landscape and work with acrylic, pencil, pen and ink. Later when lockdown eased I took the car to Limekilns and Aberdour in Fife. These were my first trips out of Edinburgh.
In September I went on holiday to a farm cottage near St. Boswell’s in The Borders. Painting in the garden at Rutherford Farm cottages, I worked faster and more directly to capture the freedom of being away, of capturing the light and the early autumn atmosphere.
